I have a gourd plant that came up as a volunteer in my mulch pile. They are pretty dark green and yellow gourds from last fall's ornamentals. When do I pick them and what do I do with them until I want to use them this fall? I usually wash any gourds in a clorox and water solution as I was told it would prolong their life after bringing them home from the farm, but other than refrigerating now, what else should I do with them?
