Last year I was too late to pick up beautiful Horse Apples (aka Hedge Apples, or Osage Oranges). This year I have been watching my secret location just waiting to see them laying on the ground. Today was the day... It has been a few days since the first frost and I knew they would be there. Today it also rained. I knew I needed to get them before they ruined since they were laying on the wet ground now. I trudged across a muddy field and picked them up. Most of them were muddy and I had to give them all a bath but I am pretty proud of my freebie centerpiece.
