Yesterday I drug another gate to the garden and set up the old swing set with poles. I have one other place by the milk house set with some old wrought iron rails for the vines to climb. I hope to grow lots of gourds this year.
I've joined a "Gourd Patch" group started by a young lady named Emily Wallace. I've attended one meeting They showed a film featuring Jim Story from Pendleton. He has passed away but is very famous for the gourds he grew. Lots of tips in the film on hand pollination, trimming vines, cleaning and shaping the gourds.
I moved Miss Scarecrow and took off the flannel shirt and muffler. Now I need to find her a new outfit. I'll be checking out the garage sales!
