Dried Out

As many of you know I have been growing birdhouse gourds in my garden, 12 have been cut from the vine and there are 3 still hanging.

I think some of these are bottleneck gourds.

From different sites on Google it can take anywhere from 30 days to 12 months from them to completely dry out…I think that depends on size and where you choose to dry then out.

There is only one that is completely dried. I like the marble effect that it has and think, for this one, I will only use a clear coat of polyurethane to shine it up

Once all are dried I will post then next phase.

Thanks for visiting!

Flower of the Day 7/24/19 – Limited

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma.

Like cotton

The Birdhouse gourd is another plant that I am growing in my garden. This plant seems to grow about 6 inches or more a day. As of today it is almost 5 feet tall already. Per different sites I read it can get upto 30 feet long in some cases. I hope not in this case since my trellis is only 18 feet.

The leaves are pretty big and Arai wanted to touch them he says that they feel like cotton. I had to see for myself and it really does feel like cotton.

The kids ate just as excited as I am about how we are watching our plants become food.

Oh…. my pea flowers have turned into peas!

Peas!
