warf apricot tree
Posted by Margaret from PA zone 6 on 2008-07-04 12:35:00

Somebody stole almost all my apricots. This is the 1st year for them; I pruned
them back (took off enough so there'd be
6 inches between them when they were smaller than golf balls)then waited for the rest to ripen. They're now all gone (50-60 of them)except maybe 2 or 3.They're not on the ground, they disappeared.I'm away every weekend; is this a human thief? Or do squirrels take them completely away? Squirrels take unripe plums, I know, but just a bite at
a time, then leave the bitten up remainder, I find them on the ground.
