Looks like a concrete plug or corner post arrangement. Appears to be some cornstalks mixed in with it.

Now, what is it really?   ::) ::) ???

I think its a petrified elephants foot. He probably succumbed to the flames while stomping out burning ducks. I think you can still see some feathers in there.

Yes much closer in size to an elephants foot than asparagas.  By the way it is sitting on a solid 8x8x16 concrete block with a 4 inch stovepipe length in the background,

Had ta study for a few days afore it come to me  PLAIN AS DAY.  :P 

It's absolutely, without a doubt an ancient grit making rock.

See that there hollowed out part there on top.  

One a them 'personal sized models'.

Small enough ta be portable.

Long, long before the days of the infamous '  deflangulator kunooter motor'

Used by ancient tribesman as a base to crack walnuts and hicker nuts, and 'CRUSH CORN TA MAKE GRITS'! 8) 8) 8)

Upon first look it reminded me of a girdled root ball with the burlap still on.

But the puzzling absence of a stump on the top. Caused me to look a little closer. Not certain but the upper area looks much like the top of a 'conk' most probably Ganoderma, Phaeolus, or Fomitopsis spp.  ???

exactly

piece of the root from that walnut stump, almost 11 inches across.

I cut this piece out 10 feet away from the stump and was not able to move the remainder toward the stump.  Thats when I figured I would leave it in place and cut it off below the floor line.

Let me know If you want a chunk to turn as your prize Tom!
