I Don't Want to Share

Fireblight took all the apples from my ‘Yellow Newtown Pippin’ but two. Despite having no other fruit to support, the two remaining were still growing very slowly. While there was a peck or two on my ‘Gravenstein’ apples, the Pippins were unmolested so I didn’t feel the need to bag them.
Today when I went out to water the garden, I saw the twig that held them broken off the tree. One small unripe apple was gone. The other had what looked like a bird peck in it. Either it was a very fat bird or it was a squirrel because the twig was broken right off even though it was green, not dead.
