It just seems when i was a kid the greater the need ,the more nature provided.When i was a kid we all hunted as a means to survive. Yet there were deer for everyone that needed one. Everyone grew a garden with nothing stronger than phosphate. The apple trees provided all the apples we needed for cider, apple sauce, pies, whatever. I remember fishing and no one going without.Whats changed? The apple trees no longer bear fruit. The streams don't have fish if the state does'nt put them there. The deer herd is almost non existant. No one seems to garden anymore and if they do it's a feeble attempt to say the least. I wonder if the little honey bee decline could be the answer on the garden. And i was wondering what your thoughts were on all the above. Maybe i'm just senile and don't remember well.At 50 i'd like to think i have'nt lost it altogether. STEVE.
