I have been asked what I do with my gourds after they have cured. I tried to capture the witch I carved in this one, but it does not photograph well. Maybe if you squint while you look? Just kidding. I carved the hole in the back instead of the bottom, so the light doesnt shine quite the way I had intended. I will do it differently next time. Oh, and no candles, these gourds are very flamable.
This gourd in the picture below may or may not cure. It has an odd shape and it doesn't have a hollow sound when I thump it. It has a "heavy" feel to it, even though it is a lot smaller than the others.
I like this tall one, I think I will try to paint an ethnic doll when it is dry. Very exotic........
I like this trio of ........ snowmen...... the three bears? Don't know yet, I just like them, they have character.
This years harvest is light, only 12. But that is pretty good considering these plants were all volunteers from seeds falling on the ground from two years ago. I tried planting last year, but the early rains wiped them out. Since this spring was also rainy I decided to skip the planting. Nice surprise.
