Yesterday I walked outside and saw this deer brazenly eating the apples off of the apple tree in our yard. Every year at this time it is always a race between us getting fruit off of the trees and the animals getting the fruit. I don’t mind sharing, the trees generally produce more than we will use, but all too often we wake up to find all of the fruit gone, and sometimes the trees have been thrashed to pieces. Bears are the worst vandals, but so far this year I haven’t seen any bears in our yard.
We do have several fruit trees behind our garden fence and they are more secure from the thievery.
