ISO of source mini gourds???

Middle of, VA(Zone 7a)

My buddies Kristi and Jo suggested I post over here...any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

Hello again!!
I have a Native American friend who's seen teeny mini gourds that are used in making jewelry - might any of you point me in a direction i.e. source to buy some of these seeds for her. She's a lovely woman, I'd love to help out!!!
Hugs,

Hey there Chantell,

Hope all is well. I just saw this post, hopefully I caught you before you order some. Won't be able to send them off till next week if that is alright , got classes to attend. I'll open a couple and send you some seeds, I've got to get some for myself also.

Gourd,
Would it be possible for me to get some of those little jewelry gourd seeds also?
I've been trying to find some and had no luck.
My address, just in case

Hi Mary,
You bet, but, send me a dmail and take your address off your post using the edit button because I think it can be seen by anyone on the web.

Click on my name, then click on send a DMail, and send me a mail, so that I can keep track of you guys. I copied your address too.

edited for spelling.

Just FYI, when I was at Lowe's the other day I saw (but didn't get) apple gourd seeds. I'm not putting in any cucurbits this year; trying to keep the rotation reasonable. Plus, my daughter and her kids have moved in with me (which is why I'm not online a lot anymore) and so I have a lot of gourds I haven't done anything with. I'm going to use them before I grow any more!

Well, Bridg...post when you can...we miss all of our friends...Jo

A - sorry for the delay...sadly I had to put my 10 1/2 year old dog to sleep last week and I've not been on much. I appreciate any you have that you're able to share...thank you SO much!! I'll dmail you my addy...since it's been a while!!!

So sorry about your dog, Chantell. I know how hard that is. Sending you {{{hugs}}}

I just got back from class, and I mailed out two boxes with mini gourds, regular mail, so they should get there next week probably. You will have to cut some of them open to get the seeds out, I thought you might enjoy some whole mini gourds.

I'm right there with you and feel your pain, today is the one year anniversary of my sweet blessing who had liver cancer, she was only nine.....

sending a prayer your way that the pain will be gone soon so that the wonderful memories will take over.

I'm sure my sweet blessing and her mom Acacia were at the bridge to welcome your sweetie.

this is blessing

So back to the mini gourds, has anyone found a place that sells the seeds?

I received my box of mini gourds yesterday. MY sister says thank you. She is planning on saving seeds from the smallest ones and see how they grow.

Crossville, TN

I sent out some gourd seeds to a couple of folks...I hope they got them. Jo
