What is it about them…?

Pictures, and of Hudson, too, but still working on getting my WordPress update to show them.

Saturday evening there was one.

Sunday evening there were five.

Tonight I found eleven on the ground, chewed in a top-off-then-hollowed-out pattern so as to get the most of the innards with the least of the skin, the biggest one maybe an inch and a half across and not due to be ripe till September and October. This is May! Just the apples, and only the Fuji variety and not the due-in-June plums–and the dirt under the Fuji tree now looked like a chinese checkerboard with a preemie apple for a marble inserted into one of the new holes.

Game on!

I need me more clamshells, fast.

Oh those nasty critters! I’m looking forward to seeing baby photos.

I just dug 2 out of the recycling box for you!

We have a mock orange tree … stupid critters try to eat those, too!

(They also like to eat all the mandarins off the neighbors’ tree, and leave the peelings on our side of the fence.)
