Re: What happened to the apples?


Is this time for a "me too" confession, although we never ever cleaned off all of the apples, just the good low hanging fruit?

Even if you hire someone to pick them you are likely to have a few left.
I think it was a daylight deal.

Re: What happened to the apples?


Well, nobody really knows when I'll be here or not- retired, 4 vehicles used randomly except for using jeep on USPS route last year but nothing occurred on those days.
Thing is, I've got a lot better pickin than apples. Like a lot of all kind of tools for auto, carpentry, etc. which are easier to get and more valuable than apples.

(BTW, my address is 1600 Penn Ave., WA DC)
My closest neighbors are salt of the earth, good people who are very Bible fundamentalists. Last year I thought who steals apples, even asked if they had seen anyone in the yard.

This year I had one apple left. Kinda thing that makes me go Huh! I think I'll name it eve. Oops, Spock already ate it.

Least they could is make me a pie.

Re: What happened to the apples?


Here's one possibility for you. Whatever took them had to climb or be tall enough and able to take them all so I was wondering about a family of raccoons. Did a search and found this article. "Last year they climbed over the fence when I was sleeping late at night and stole every single apple off my tree the exact night before I was going to pick them all." sound familiar?

Re: What happened to the apples?


Wow! That thread so closely parallels this one it's uncanny. Well except for the rabbi epidemic.
I've seen no evidence of coons like overturned garbage, and the folks next to me had free range chickens (hundreds) and didn't seem to have problems. But this makes the most sense.
I'm gonna leave the cam near the tree for a while. If I ever get a good pic I'll post it.

Thanks everyone.

Re: What happened to the apples?


As someone said before, animals make a mess, especially racoons. I've seen it. Two people went in that yard with one of the long poles that has the basket at the end. I can't say where they parked their car/van/pickup. They didn't haul 2 or 3 bushels by hand. Have you talked to any neighbors?


Being a tech guy, I just thought of something else. They may not be from your area. They could have used Google Earth to find targets.

if it was coons you'd see their feces everywhere. if you know what that looks like it would be a dead give away.

Re: What happened to the apples?


Just reviving this rather than making a new post, but this guy has been showing up at our jobsite for a few days. According to the neighbors, he wanders around and is rather tame. He eats berries and, I guess the neighbors feed him. 7 points in velvet.

Re: What happened to the apples?


Since you revived the thread, I'll say once again not only do I think that animals had nothing to do with it, the caper for lack of a better word, is more high tech than we think. As I said, the apple thieves used Google Earth to find targets. Call it a conspiracy theory but some conspiracies are real.
