That reminds me that I have a bag of dried gourds in the garage, from oh, maybe, um, five years ago. I checked them and they are fine and dry and the seeds still rattle.

I couldn't decide what I wanted to do with them. I guess I should make birdhouses out of them!

I like the idea of making birdhouses out of them. Perhaps I should try growing gourds next year, I'll have to wait and see if I have the space for them.


We (my 12 yr old and I) grew these a few years ago, I loved the white blooms. We didn't wash ours (what a great idea!) and ours rotted. Maybe we should try again, I amglad you are posting your efforts.

I grew larger variety gourds for the first time this year and we're expecting a frost Thursday. I actually wanted to share that I planted one variety in a 5x5 foot ground box, 16 mounds, 2 plants per mound...liberal with horse manure that sat out all winter and ended up with 37 decent sized gourds. My plants are going by now and were quite resistant to the blight (next year I'll spray with copper, though). I'm not sure how well they will cure. I'll keep you posted from Southern Maine.----Melissa
