I can’t believe I’ve gotten so many gourds this year. I planted two different varieties. The small ones are Baby Bottles and the large ones are Dipper Long Handles. I’m a little disappointed in the Baby Bottles I thought they would be bigger, but am very pleased with the Dipper Long Handle.
I tried growing them last year, but without much success. I did get a few small ones, which my dog Kahlo had a grand time shredding. But thanks to her I have a few volunteers.
The plant which has been the most productive has grown into the woods and seems to be loving it.
I’m a member of the Northwest Florida Arts Association and thought maybe I could have a kids class and have the kids paint the gourds once they are dry. Anyone have any tips on what or how to paint the gourds or any other ideas on what to do with my gourds? Oh, also how long do they take to dry?
