Today I had a lovely morning hitting three old cemeteries. In one, there was a hill and the back half was covered in low lying blueberries. They were everywhere and many were ripening nicely.
I said to my friend, “If we weren’t in a cemetery, I’d eat some”.
“What difference does that make?”
“I think it would be disrespectful,” I replied.
“To whom? The dead people here?”
One should not disturb plants about old graves unless its a trimming back of overgrowth so that the markers can be read or preserved. Would they mind? I don’t really know and since I am not skilled enough to ask, I’d rather be safe. Plus these plants are growing and getting nourished from DEAD BODIES. Ick factor? I’d rather not feed off the dead, for many reasons.
