G'day Everyone, in the absence of a "chat" a proper chat feature we can have a bit of a chin wag here if you like? Of course, if you have specific questions on certain subjects then post them in the appropriate forums but for general stuff we can ramble here... :)

Glad to see you here Mark. I followed Mandy's link in the Livestream and registered. I did not know this forum existed.
You are a busy and popular fellow- so much so that delegation of tasks to trusted others may be a big task for you.

Even after decades of gardening- lots to learn !
I am easing towards self-sufficiency and food forest concepts.

Sounds tasty! Happy to see so many new faces here!
It has a bit of a "sting" to it but it is nice!

Thanks for your moderation on the livestream again today :)

Yes I hope people find our forum a good place to hang out online - I would love to "grow" this into a fun resource.

Mark- a million people are clambering for your attention on Youtube alone- you gotta delegate or gets stressed out by trying to cover too much ground.

Never stop learning and that's one of the endearing elements of gardening...

@Jay Dixon I honestly think @Mark has been doing great! But asking for help to lift the workload might also really help easy some of the stress.
Absolutely agree !
There is such a groundswell of people that it is a mathematical impossibility for Mark to do it all personally and not get too stressed.
Glad he found people to help him out !

Frankly, I think all he had to do was ask for help in the very first livestream and the majority of us popped up to help! That's how I got here as well!
Sometimes you don't know where to look, when really it was right in front of you all along :)

Actually- I offered help before, during and after the first and second Livestream as I had experience as a gardening moderator/assistant on other channels.
Glad he found some helpers.

If that's the case we'll definitely keep you in mind if more help is needed! A lot of this is still trial and error for all of us as well. Suggestions are always welcome!
