This morning, when I went to check the status of ripening fruit on the two late apricots, I found this mess in between the ‘Autumn Glo’ (the tree whose trunk is visible) and the ‘Earli Autumn.’ (Hey, I didn’t give them their names!)
Some fruit had been knocked down, and while there are a couple of fruits that have been more or less cut in two, the rest is chopped up, almost as though someone was preparing a fruit salad.
What sort of animal does this? I had not seen anything like ths till recently. I found a few chopped up fruit beneath the ‘Earli Autumn’ before I tightened the netting over that tree. The ‘Autumn Glo’ had no neeting at the time this happened. It does now. We’ll see if that helps. But this is quite a mystery.
