Gourd maddness

11-30-11 fall harvest brain

Back in late October or early November, I can't remember now, I was in KC for a week and it was a good time to harvest my garden of gourds. This vine all came from one gourd seed I had planted in late spring. Nothing grew for a long time, but finally in August a vine started to grow and went crazy. It grew up some bushes and covered a large patch of ground.

So finally late October, KC had a killing frost and the vines began to die off, revealing many gourds.

Much to my surprise I harvested at least 50 gourds of various sizes. My hope now is to dry these and have fun paining them next summer.
