We live next to an empty lot where a friend’s house used to be, and we’ve got permission to garden on that lot if we wanted to.
I play fetch with my dog several times a day in this lot, and happened to notice the apples from the tree next door hanging over the fence.
Several are already rotting on the ground, and I picked one. Very sweet, and there are lots of them hanging invitingly within arm’s reach.
My question for my friend Kate, the Urban Forager, is: Am I stealing or foraging?
