Good Gourd, Will You Look at That?

A menagerie of drying gourds left from this year’s hanging garden

Autumn is well upon us and the plants in the garden know it. The gourd plants in the hanging garden petered out in mid-September and as the leaves and vines die back, they reveal a wide variety of gourds — bottle, birdhouse, bowl, dipper, and luffa — hanging around drying and waiting to be picked.

I’ll leave them in place a while longer while I figure out what to do with them.

Sage Osterfeld
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.
