No Problem sure what's the point in knowing something if you cannot share it, that's why I last so long on this site people are interested and interesting and mostly (Always) stick to gardening or horticulture topics. keep it up.

Hey Tawny Owl. Haven't heard from you in a while. Any chance of an update on the progress you made?

Lying in my sick bed greengage and nothing else to do.
They will still get the e-mail notification, so you never know. Are you not curious as to how some of these projects turned out? A little bit of harvesting could produce something. Not vanished but dormant.

Thanks for the good wishes. Only in the eighth week of it now and finally following doctors orders and stayed home from work and confined to bed.

Does it not get the better of you though, sometimes spending a considerable amount of time and sometimes research helping people out and then you don't get to see the end results?

Not getting at you individually here Tawny Owl should you happen to read this as you are far from the only one.

It used to bother me but not anymore i enjoy the research and sometimes I just post off the top of my head it keeps me on my toes around here, we have dwindled down to about 6 posters regularly, maybe we should have a mini conferance to see how we should increase numbers but having said that on other forums which I contribute posts on there are similar numbers of posters with others dropping in and out and out and others just watching. On other sites I post questions I all ready know the answers too to provoke answers and sometimes to be mischivious, yea still havent figured out what im at on other posts here, keep watching Laughing

Thank you for your informative posts Greengage, I have learned a lot from you. Asking questions is a good idea. I am constantly learning and looking up things. I have gardened for years and love growing things but I am in no way an expert.

I was once told the definition of an 'expert' - X is an unknown quantity and spurt is a drip under pressure! Laughing Laughing Still want to be an expert?

Nearly forty years and counting and I'm only just beginning to realise how little I know. That's part of the reason I joined IG. That and the craic.

The only thing I can think of is try the harvesting that I started recently and going back on the old threads so as the departed will then receive an e-mail notification. Of course James could also do his bit as promised some time back.

Anyone remember this? http://www.gardenplansireland.com/forum/about7586.html
Started a year ago tomorrow, has anyone noticed any changes yet, I haven't?

You think I haven't seen what you are up to? I have said it before on here long ago, you are a wise old sage!

I read back over all that just now. I think that the in the winter time when there is not much gardening going on people want to keep posting,to keep the forum active as well as anything else. It is going to liven up soon enough when all the gardening work starts.

Well that is a given Ado, but the point of it all was to increase the number of core members which hasn't happened.

Not forcing but coercing. A rallying call at last!

Force the rhubarb, not the Forumites!

I like your definition of an expert, Sue.

Yes, this is the usual slack period, just like last year and nothing to worry about, I think. It would be good to have a few more stalwarts, though.

Tomorrow, I'm going to start a new thread to give us something to chat about.
