Re: [Wild-Foodies-of-Philly] Cheryl's apple tree needs harvesting

On the one hand, the plant is exposed to excess carbon dioxide (a good thing for plants), on the other hand, the plant has been exposed to other types of particulates from exhaust.  Are these things better/worse than the insecticides sprayed in commercial orchards?  In anything, it is a cost/benefit analysis.  

BTW: the yellow apple tree on Rt 73 in Palmyra, NJ behind Roger Wilco is almost bare.  Hope everyone was able to enjoy.


When you choose not to choose, you have still made a choice.

This is the 2nd time (Hugh of the Nature Studies group, also suggested it) I've now seen mention of foraging in parking lots.  Aren't these highly contaminated places?  I would love to be able to make use of such a bountiful resource, but I've avoided doing so because of the contamination...  opinions?
