Monkey Balls! (APAD)

The 23rd picture in "A Picture A Day" series.

These are hedge apples also known as, monkey balls. They are produced by the Osage-Orange tree and, according to folk lore, are a spider repellant, which I am in desperate need of since I have a serious brown recluse problem. Yeah, I should probably call an exterminator since brown recluse bites are pretty severe, but I'm broke as hell so monkey balls will have to do. I guess you just place the balls around your house and they keep spiders at bay. Let's freakin' hope ...

I'm totally in love with these things. I think they are so cool looking and they have a lemony-orange scent. Yummy.
