YAY! Welcome to my little gourd family, of all shapes and sizes...all persuasions, all sorts of possibilities, opportunities and freshly picked for an eco bird house future. I have only grown gourds one other time and they didn't turn out this awesome! These guys rock so hard that I felt proud to have helped birth each one (with the help of nature.) I am hoping i can dry at least a few out successfully and without using creepy chemicals - it is very common for all gourds to be bleached and such to kill the mold that will naturally grow while they are drying. I am going to try out my good ole' standby of apple cider vinegar and baking soda.
Look some of them are seriously bigger then my head!
Has anyone else dried gourds without using bad chems to help it along?
