      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Garden Yields?

Recommended Posts

I started my first garden this year. It's kinda dorky, but I set up a spreadsheet to see about planting next year. I have 2 4x8 raised beds. I used 1/2 and 1/2 Topsoil and Manure mixture. # of plants:

6 Jalapeno

3 Habenero

3 Serrano

3 Super Chili

3 Hot Bananna

1 packet of vine green beans

6 bell pepper

2 Cherry Tomato

4 Roma tomato

Here's what I have picked so far:

68 Jalapeno

5 Habenero

57 Serrano

83 Super Chili

66 Hot Bananna Pepper

90 Green Beans

7 Big Bell Peppers

66 Roma Tomato

354 Cherry Tomato

There is wayyyyyyy more out there that I haven't even picked yet. I'm surprised I didn't do this before, because I love salsa and chili! Now if I could just find a few hundred bags of tortilla chips somewhere!

My garden has been very slow this year. I don't get full sun but when it comes around it cooks my spot. This, generally, hasn't been a very good garden year in my neighborhood.

I started 24 early girl tomatoes from seed in March. Also 200 walla walla onion plants. Did the lights and planted everything in the ground a week before memorial day. The tomatoes were so big they were flowering when they went into the garden. Ate my first tomato Jul 9. I have picked close to 8 bushels and have canned over 20 qts of sauce and given away many. Have tons of onions and accidentally bought habaneros instead of Japalernos. These things are so hot that I only give them to people I don't like. Did gardening this year to be as cheap as possible. Two bags of seeds and about 12 bucks for electricity for the grow lights. Easily got back my investment and next year will be cheaper cause I now own the grow lights and the tomato cages. I also tried to do Romas which did not produce as well and I am not too crazy about the flavor. Did 4 super sweet 100s and am picking about 150 a day of those. Been an awesome tomato year for me.

I had 15 lbs of cherry tomatoes, so I just made a bunch of puree for salsa. We made 1/2 a turkey fryer pot of salsa yesterday.

Generally can't enumerate what comes off the garden as between what I eat when I'm out there and what gets given away between the wife and I, there's no good way of knowing. Gave away many gallons of fresh picked string beans and sugar snap peas, quite a few small buckets of tomatoes, boo-koo grocery bags of cukes and dozens of ears of sweet corn. In addition, many 5 gallon pails of overdone cukes and at least one of string beans found their way over the fence to the sheep after being gone on business for a week. The zucchini of all things was about the most disappointing. Perhaps a dozen with lots of aborted zukes. Probably the closest I can come on any of the produce is the muskmelons. Gave away about 10 so far, ate another 5 roughly and there appear to be about 20 left to ripen/pick. Not sure on the pumpkin, gourd, squash, Indian corn front yet. All I know is I planted, weeded and fought the bugs so there are plenty for her to use for this fall wedding she's decorating for. Mysteriously somehow, a little fat buddy fall fishing trip managed to get planned for that same weekend. Let's see, go fishing or go to a wedding? Oh alright, guess I'll go fishing. grin

    • some people are bad apples that give the sport a bad name, I as a snowmobiler have respect for driveways. FYI driveway approaches are on the public right of way, you may not block them, or place anything that can injure someone. trail groomers actually do you a favor by knocking down the bank, to keep it level. unless your groomer was not well trained, they will not groom over your driveway.
    • If code allows post frame for residential construction then by design you don't need a block foundation. 
    • Perfect that awnsers my question. Why spend $250 when I could spend $150 on a new lazer bit and cuts faster, it’s more durable but still about same weight and a chipper but. Really a no brainer. What are you seeing for drilling time with that 8 inch lazer?
    • From my experience one of my only complaints with the Kdrill is how slow it drills. It more than gets the job done but my laser 8” is faster.
    • So I’ve always fished 8 inch holes but really why? Most Anything can fit through a 6 inch hole anyway. I was thinking maybe for next season of getting a 6 or 8 inch I drill and putting it on my 1.5hp solo. Right now it’s about 24lb which is light but with the k drill it would be lighter yet. My question is would I be getting any more speed out of a k drill vs regular SM chipper bit? And then I can invest in a nice Milwaukee fuel and there we go.
    • Hi there, new here. Found this place because of this older topic.  We are planning a pole barn home on a slab. This is the 1st one in our township and the inspector seems unsure about the requirements for the slab "foundation" and insulation. When we started last year the old inspector said if the poles are through the frost level (42") you can just lay down a flat 4" slab. The new inspector seems to think it needs a foundation. Not finding much info online for this specific build. Plan as of right now. 4" radon pea gravel and barrier, 4" rock, 2" foam, heat tubes, steel mesh with 4" concrete over that. Someone here know the county (Isanti) spec for something like this? Township overrules county.  Thanks.   https://talk.newagtalk.com/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=376864&DisplayType=nested
    • BB gun?  Hows that for a 1st post?   
    • Ahh. Thanks for your story PRO-V. That’s what I’m trying to avoid. Plus it’s about 400 feet of hose to get to the banks...
    • A couple years ago I just got done plowing my driveway with the wheeler. Along comes an adult snowmobiler with his kid following behind. Guy crosses driveway and stops on top of opposite bank. Then he guns his machine sending all the snow back in the driveway. This is not a trail, just random ditch riders. Well I was outside and saw him do it. I jumped in my truck and cut him off at a road crossing 2 blocks away. I jumped out and royally chewed his azz and told him what a bad example he was setting for the kid. I think he got the message. For awhile after that I sprayed water on the banks to freeze them. No respect, they wouldn't want you doing that to their driveway.
