Pictures of my gourds
Hello everyone--I have not posted on this forum before, but wanted to show off my gourds. I am not an artist or crafter--but have had a blast just growing them. A client of mine from work brought me a single gourd back from her vacation to Georgia or North Carolina (?). It had been cleaned out for a birdhouse, but 3 or 4 seeds remained inside. I am a compulsive gardener, so I just couldn't throw those seeds away! There are three totally different shapes of gourds growing (all from the single parent). The structure that they are growing on is the frame of my hoophouse/greenhouse that I cover with plastic in the fall. The photos were taken earlier in the summer. The plants have still not died completely--I am just going to cover them over and wait them out. I have banged my head (knocked myself silly) then turned around and banged it again--SO MANY TIMES--you'd THINK I would learn!!!
I think next year I would like to grow some luffa (?) and/or the short fat bowl type. Its been a LOT of fun. I am pleased to find this forum.
