Mystery of the Damson Plums

0131.JPGThis weekend I was all set to pick our Damson heirloom plums for jam. To my surprise there were NONE on the tree Saturday morning. None. The night before there had been hundreds. There was just one shriveled plum on the ground. There were also quite a few branches lying about, looking like they had been snipped. Deer would have eaten the branches but would not have been able to reach the fruit. Later that day I was up on the ladder in the barn looking for something in the loft when I saw a big pile in the corner. It was all the plum tree leaves, twigs, fruit and branches!! What could have done that? There is no way to get up to the loft without a ladder (which is moved to that area when we need to get up there) and this was all done in about 48 hours!!! Here is the picture of the pile but no evidence of who did it!
