Alien brain invasion

The Osage Orange, also known as the hedge apple, the horse apple, the bois d’arc, and the bodock, has been bombing Ohio the past few weeks with big green alien brains. Last weekend we were witnesses to a battlefield in which these green wrinkly balls littered the earth.  Don’t forget to buy your 2014 SethSnap Calendar.

  1. What tree do they fall from? They are the weirdest thing I’ve ever seen. I grew up in Wisconsin and never saw anything like them. Thanks for sharing your strange world with us!

  2. It is the Osage Orange tree, was used to make live fences for livestock. The sap and juice from the fruit can irritate the skin. The wood is yellowish-orange, makes good fence posts with natural resistance to insects. When the wood is dried it makes good firewood–puts out about the same heat as coal. Just don’t park your car under one of these trees or else it could get dented.

  3. lol…you do have a way with words!!! interesting “fruit”…great photos as always…thanks for stopping by Seth…was nice to have you visit!!!

  4. Beautiful photos of the fruit in the forest. There is a cluster of these trees on my drive to work, right beside a busy thoroughfare. Those things are a bit of a traffic hazard in the city!

  5. While the simple and classic whisk is great for many tasks
    in the kitchen, there are some times and some recipes that require
    more speed and dexterity with the mixing, and that’s where these valuable devices
    come in. For those who love cooking but hate the clean-up involved the Scrap Trap is an great tool to keep your counters and floor
    sparkling and uncluttered. Toaster ovens, which can cook
    anything from toast to whole chickens, reduce the use
    of oil compared to a fryer resulting to a healthier
    meal.

  6. When I originally commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on whenever a comment is
    added I recieve 4 emails with the same comment.
    Perhaps there is a way you can remove me from that service?
    Thanks!
