Squirrels: 82, Us: 1

You'd think the score would be a bit more even.... but those lil' squirrels are hard core! After nearly four years of enjoying our apple tree (and picking up the ruins the squirrels eat and toss on the ground), we finally had one they couldn't get their hands on. It stayed on the tree long enough to ripen and turn red. Truly a first at our place!

Ripe for the picking, I grabbed my camera and captured it. (Opportunity, like an apple, doesn't hang around forever!)
