That's a good point actually...I wouldn't care about eating something where something had died, but the chemicals and whatnot used to prepare the body..I don't know.

Meh, modern caskets are like wee bomb shelters. I'd be having myself some grave apples.

lol! You guys are awesome.

For some reason I felt weird about it. Not like it was gross or anything, just weird and I couldn't put my finger on why.

Maybe I'll go pick some zombie apples then. This graveyard hasn't had anybody interred since the 1930s or so, so probably no nasty chemicals leftover.

So, NOT modern caskets? No, I don't think so. I'm just imagining where the roots are.

Maybe that's why it seemed weird then... The tree I'm thinking of probably dipped into our city founder and the first WA secretary of state.

Probably not, but only for worry about harmful chemicals.

Yeah, I'm sure they're fine. Probably more nasty stuff on the apples in the grocery store than the ones in a graveyard.

Maybe you could pick a few and go have them tested? Other than that chemical possibility, yeah, I'd eat them. (of course, store apples probably have some nasty chemicals in them too and I eat those) There's an old orchard across the road which is behind my house. It's in one of those areas that is "protected environment" of some kind. It's just a grassy field with apple trees scattered here and there. I walk the dogs in there and pick some.
