Gourd Planting Season Is Almost Here

O.k. gang for those of you who don't know I'm somewhat of a gardener. Well, gourd planting season is almost here. I thought maybe if anyone is interested in getting a few or even one I could plant a few more this year. So If you think you maybe or are interested in getting a gourd to build some sort of noise maker let me know. Just send me a message and I'll make sure you get one. Have a great morning world. :)

Thanks EarthLvr71. I'm pretty flexible with shapes. It's fun to experiment!

Usually I grow more of a birdhouse gourd but I'm open to other suggestions as well :) Very cool BTW.

Gourd mando Here's one I made a few years back. I've made some gourd banjos also. What types of gourds do you usually plant? I'm hoping to make a fiddle with a gourd this year and I'm looking for one of those figure 8 shapes. I'd be happy to pay postage whenever they reach maturity.

Hmmm. Nah, Customs here would confiscate it. There is only one Gourd, and his name is...that could get me in serious trouble if I continued that thought. >:-E

I have experience with it near the masses yet. I'm not good enough to play out. But someday. And don't foget to post a pic when your cone gets here. :)

Gourd bless you? Ron, does that mean you would like one? lol.
