A very gourd weekend...

If any of you saw the promo Martha Stewart did for the Pumpkin Patch in Illinois, the real thing is awesome.
I spent the past three days as the guest gourd artist at the patch, and had a great time.
Folks drove from all over to visit the patch. Some had seen it in Martha's magazine, others on her TV show.
I'm now down to a handful of gourds and will gratefully stay busy creating new gourd art.
They feature many varieties of squash at the farm and I now have a few new varieties to cook for dinners this week.

What's going on with the rest of you gourd folk??

Oh, I`ll have another pile of gourds that'll make the one in Martha's magazine look a bit on the small size.

This may be my last year growing gourds for awhile. The old market ain't what it once was, and I don`t need a couple thousand a year to craft on. Might be time to move on.

RE: A very gourd weekend...

Hey.....My sons are handsome men!! LOL
I might be interested in some of your gourds a little later.E-mail me if you are interested in

RE: A very gourd weekend...

The little pile of gourds at the Pumpkin Patch is just a display. The real gourd harvest has begun and it looks like a bumper crop.
Sure puts my little crop to shame!!
But as I always say....we can always grow more gourds!!
