Dipper Gourd Volunteers

Dipper Gourds
Several years ago I planted some dipper gourds at my daughter’s request. They grew and produced a bunch of dipper-shaped gourds that I didn’t really know what to do with. So they sat around on our patio for a while until our German Shepards decided that one would make a good dog toy.

They threw it around between the two of them and eventually broke it sending seeds everywhere. I thought that was the end of it until a few weeks ago when I noticed a vine creeping up the hill, over my Guava and on to the deck. Now I have a bunch of new dipper gourds.

This time, however, I think I’ll keep them away from the dogs.

I’m just a guy with nearly an acre of dirt, a nice little mid-century ranch house and a near-perfect climate. But in my mind I’m a landscaper survivalist craftsman chef naturalist with a barbeque the size of a VW and my own cable TV show. I like to write about the stuff I build, grow and see here at Sage's Acre.
