Loved it! Wanted to weep at the sight of the piled up trees.

When my younger daughter was a baby I carried on my back with her big sister clinging to one finger we spent afternoons, sometimes, prowling Butler Ranch's edenic cherry groves. My little one grabbed cherries in both little fists and crammed her mouth, staining her clothes and self with cherry juice. The next day her diaper was speckled with cherry pits. That little girl is now 24, her big sister turns 28 soon. We haven't lived in Ukiah for more than 20 years, when the town was a lot scruffier and hardscrabble than it seems on recent visits, but Ukiah has suffered a tragedy if Butler Ranch no longer grows cherries.

when my dad moved from ny to san jose in 1958 there wasn't much there but orange groves. when i moved to ukiah in 1970 it was predominately pear groves. so we need to ask peter, paul and mary; "where have all the flowers gone?"

I also morn the loss of our "real" edible fruits.
I still gather walnuts every morning in the winter.
I also used to gather apples, peaches and apricots but those trees are no more!
I personally view grapes and pot as the same, one legal one not, both destructive.
Thanks for the article.
