Gourds


Last year's gourds didn't develop enough wall thickness to use. Not sure why. But the seeds from those volunteered and have been spreading like kudzu up the hillside. I'm just going to let them alone and not touch them until they are dry. Perhaps leaving them on the vine will encourage some wall thickness.

I do stuff like this with them.



And bird houses. You just can't have too many bird houses.

    Do you sell those? I'd love to see a bird house too.

    Shades of Blue, I just said that to myself before I clicked on comments! That is what you should sell, Rosie! I would love one of those and I would also love a bird house! Think about it!

    i've always wondered how to dry gourds out...so you can just leave them on the vine and they will dry enough to make things out of?

    another cool way to use the small ones are to cut the bottom off, hollow them out, and place votive or tealight candles in them.
