Is this not the most gorgeous "apple" you have ever seen? It's actually a gourd that was grown, dried and painted by Robin and Dennis O'Neill of Happy Valley Farm (679-9767). You can't tell from the photo, but it's about 8 inches tall. I haven't decided yet where I'm going to put it or what I'm going to do with it, but I couldn't resist buying it at the farmers market this morning. It makes me smile just to look at it!
