Hi all.

I have just started growing gourds but have no idea about when to pick, drying out, using the gourds afterwards, etc. Growing them isn't a problem as I grow my own vegetables, etc.

Instead of boring all of you, I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good web site that has this information. I have looked at a few but they don't seem to tell me much.

Thanks in advance.

Go to http://www.amishgourds.com It's the best explanation about gourds that I've seen. Theree's also a lot of other interresting information on this site.
