First Timer with Dipper Gourds and ???
I ordered the seed and plan to start April 12 and transplant May 12-20.
I have been doing some reading on growing, harvesting and dry etc, including reading the messages posted here. I'm am confused about the "bring in or leave out" issue. When you leave them to "field dry" does that mean you leave them on the dead vines thru the winter buried in snow (if hill planted) or hanging on a trellis until spring and then cut away? How do I know they are mature enough to be safe leaving them out. We usually get our first hard frost around Oct. 31/Early Nov. If I can let them be outdoors that is what I would prefer if possible.
