update on my spinner gourds and others
well, well, well,
My vines are finally starting to die. but I have to tell you, I'm up to my eye balls in lil spinners! I planted 4 plants and they went EVERYWHERE!
Now, my husband wants to make it into a guessing game, to see how many really grew! Don't know what the winner will get, probably to take the vines out back to compost...LOL
I have notice that the ones that are ready to be cut off the vine, which 2 have fallen off, are all cream colored, they lost their stripes. so, i don't see a need to peel them. I could be wrong, but these came off clean!
And I also planted 2 snake plants and only got 3 snake gourds, one ended up to being 38" long, b/c it fell off and is half dried and straight, the other 2 are curled.
Egg gourds never took and neither did the birdhouses.
ornamental gourds are still growing and rabbit poo is the best fertilizer!
