dh said potato (with extreme confidence). I think it looks like a dropped, unpolished kukui nut. Or maybe a hazelnut.

I also think it looks like something else I have seen and it's driving me crazy that I can't think of what!

I agree that it looks like someone died of a stubbed toe. However, I think it is really an acorn.

You all are so polite! I thought it looked like the tip of a part of the male anatomy...

No one has gotten it yet.

Hint: It's April. In New Hampshire. First thing up in the vegetable garden.

I'll post the answer later this morning.
