Any gourd growers?

I don't have the room to grow them, but if anyone does, and can part with some, when they are ready, I use them for arts and crafts.

RICK, you are a week too late, I've grown them every year but this one. I just traded 3 bushels for a few plants.
I have some seed if you want them. Email your address if you do. It's still not too late ans they don't take up that much room on teepees and you can cut some of and the rest will get bigger, at least that's what I've done in the past

RE: Any gourd growers?

Ah, alas the yard is just too small for them. (Big city postage stamp, you know?)

Thanks, for the offer though. Sorry I missed out on the bushels. Oh well. Story of my life.

RE: Any gourd growers?

Well, now that I know you want them for...whatever
I'll do them next year. There is a lady at the Bastrop Farmer's market that has them every weekend. Want me to check it out?

RE: Any gourd growers?

Rick, email me, I may have a couple from last year!!!

Thanks carrie.

Okedoke, thanks Carrie.

Jolana, I hadn't looked at the Farmers Market, because it is 28 miles from my house!

Now that I think about it, I can look there for the next season's crop. Thanks. (Cheaper than shipping from Ohio.)

RE: Any gourd growers?

Uh, yeah
Okay now we need to know what are you going to do with them, lol

RE: Any gourd growers?

Native arts and crafts, of course. Trying to make something that will rival the ones seen in ars and crafts shows at high prices, without paying the high prices. (smile)

The results will be a while, though.
