Growing local

Was thinking I might do a youtube video of a walk around the garden. It will probably take 20 minutes or so. Let me know if this would be worrhwhile. I am still happy if people want to come to my GV but can understand that certain age groups need to be careful.
Have butchered some excess male quail. Beautiful on the bbq for about 12minutes.Some females have started laying, about 8-10 so far. Planting lots of seeds in case I have to feed some freeloading friends. They all usually laugh at me and my obsession to grow my own food, they are not laughing now. Found my first pitangatuba flower this arvo!

Ok. I will try to get on it this weekend. Have been very busy trying to finish some jobs off, so I can get paid, so I can keep my staff on even if we go into lockdown. A bit of a stressful time but count my blessings that I have been able to work as Im not interacting with anyone apart from my one bloke on the tools with me. I hope to get some quail eggs in the incubator soon, am up to 14 eggs a day.

videos are a good idea.  
My bookclub is doing their first meeting using zoom this Friday.  

Maybe we could do something like all watch Doug's video and then have a zoom online meeting where we ask him questions about his garden.  BYO coffee and snacks, and a comfy chair by the computer.
zoom is free for <100 participants but there is a time limit of 40mins

That sounds like a good idea, Andy is always giving us Videos of his garden but me I would have to have Graham do it for me.

It looks like a eugenia type flower.  I would be happy to see a video of your garden Doug.  A talking video would be great.  Maybe we could have a section or area on this site for our members garden video's, with updates at any time.
