confused about freezing the gourd
I seem to be reading that people leave them outside all winter!! It gets 25 below here. Is this true to leave them out? I was thinking they should go into the basement on a shelf where it is dark. I also have read that people put them in their barns. I have a horse barn but that is freezing too.
I cut them off the brown vine and washed them with soap and water. I then rubbed them down with alchol. Was this correct?
I am more confused now than I was when I planted them!! help.................
