There's summat wrong wi kids today
There's a bit of talk of pinching apples around - these wouldn't have seen ripeness let alone rotting on the trees when we were kids.

do modern kids know where apples come from or do they think they come off a shelf in a supermarket

Modern kids have parents and should know about everything.

Talking about kids today.......Going a bit off subject ...hubby and self were talking about bonfire night when we were kids.We used to start collecting about september ..going all over the place and if we found any wood of any sort,would drag it through the streets to where we had the bonfire.can you imagine the kids doing that now? if you asked them they would just say "wad`y meen?"Our bonfire was always on "Bithells field" where the brocket arm is now.. Oh happy days Anybody out there who remembers bithells field ?

Thats what Im saying Helen they have parents but there parents are letting them down by not talking to them and not telling them about life.

But maybe reason is that the parents dont know them selves.

Still lots of apples on that tree. I remember as a lad climbing into the walled gardens at Haigh Hall and raiding the apple and pear trees, keepers made it dificult with barbed wire etc:
Good old days.
