    I mowed some hay on the halves for a guy this year. Second cutting isn't worth anything at all. I should be charging him for cutting his weeds.

    Anyway I was raking it today and found these little guys. A bunch of them actually and I have no idea what they are.

    I have lived within two miles of this field for 25 years and never seen this before. What are they?

    Ok, the images show up now. Does the plant have small thorns or bristles?

    They had been cut several days ago. The only stems I saw were very thin. Almost comically thin and it seems to climb up what ever is there like a vine with no ability to hold the weight of its own "fruit".

    Hopefully this pic will actually show up this time.....

    I really am glad this is a FREE app. Haha.

    They have a very distinct smell once you open them. Almost citrus like.

    I realized I did not answer the question, no thorns anything that I could see.

    I have something similar around here, except the "fruit" is a light beige color. Have no idea what it's called other than darn weeds.

    The only reason I care is to find out if it is poisonous to cattle. Anyone??

    Those pods look very similar to Yucca pods.

    I looked up Yucca on Wikipedia. Pretty sure we don't have those in Southwest VA.

    It looks like a ripe "maypop" friut to me. See maypop - Google Search and Passiflora incarnata - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

    It's not poisonous to cattle -- or at least the cattle on our farm when I was growing up.

    I think you've got it! Looking through Google images of "maypop" it looks like the same stuff. I wonder why I've never seen it on our place two miles away or any where else? Odd.
