Re: Who ate my apples?
They ALL disappeared from Sunday to Wednesday,and no sign of any debris, that’s why it’s such a puzzle. And it happened last year, too. The drops usually are no more than half eaten and discarded, so I can’t figure out who did this surgical strike on the tree. Squirrels are messy, the apples are too big for chipmunk holes, do woodchucks climb trees and how long would an apple last in the heat of summer stored in a den anyway? Plus the hawks would have been lying in wait and left some remnants of a struggle if the smaller creatures were harvesting. We’ve seen more wild turkey feathers and turkey poop lately, but not really a lot, compared to the deer poop. If it was a climber, maybe I could shield the trunk next year before August 1.
