    On a budget? Head for your fence line and cut some Osage orange--which
    produces "hedge apples."
    Off topic? Slightly, but no where near recent bridge bolts ;-)
    Meriwether Lewis wrote to Thomas Jefferson from St. Louis on 26 March
    1804, a few weeks before embarking on the expedition. "I send you
    herewith inclosed, some slips of the Osages Plums, and Apples. I fear
    the season is too far advanced for their success." He had obtained the
    cuttings "from the garden of Mr. Peter Choteau, who resided the greater
    portion of his time for many years with the Osage nation." Pierre
    Chouteau, who had introduced the species to gardens in and around the
    village of St. Louis at the end of the 1790s, told Lewis he got them "at
    the great Osage vilage (sic) from an Indian of that nation, who said he
    procured them about three hundred miles west of that place...'
