A Walk Among the Gourds

The gourd garden path on August 20, 2020

The August heat is baking everything except the hanging gourd garden, which has used it as an opportunity to fill out the overhead trellis with vines and fruit (so much it’s sagging in places).

A couple of weeks ago I wasn’t sure which gourds were growing (I don’t label very well), but now that they’re dropping down, I can see that we’ve got the three B’s — birdhouse, bowl and bottle — gourds growing.

Looks like I’m going to have a gourd forest come fall.

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.
