I have never known nature such as yours... and that is a pity.
My rear yard, such as it is, is probably smaller than most people's living
rooms (and, concomittably, my house is probably smaller than most)... but
I've found that my children, who will be 7 in March, really do love being
able to pull their own carrots from our soil, pick and shell their own peas,
pick their own berries (blueberries, blackberries, strawberries and
raspberries) as well as watch my pick herbs for cooking dinner.
Sorry, don't know what the answer is... just am hoping that it is partially
realized by helping teach an appreciation for whatever environment one can
minus the pubic hair, of course.
