I forgot to add the inches in the title lol.
I am very surprised at the shape of my apple gourds this year but I can't complain about the size.

I will be sure to bring you some seeds for this one, I also have some for the Yucca gourd and others, the list is just too long lol.
I don't know what happened to the apple gourds this year, they seem to be distored. I had some perfect ones last year but these are so long instead of being round???? I think it's because we've had rain every day since spring.

Morph I think your right :} but I would rather give up the rain and water them my self. I think I am going to have to have a pool party in my back yard the next time it floods and your invited. Here is what my applese looked like last year without all the rain http://plantsdatabase.com/go/54003/

Willow I sure will, I do have some kettle gourds seed and the is one that I decorated to go with my painting.

Wind, I really like this one! Cool idea and use of the kettle gourd :) I MIGHT be able to pull something like that off, but never any of your images or detail work like the faces.

You'd be surprised what you can do, this one took more time to do than my drawings. Waiting for paint to dry and trying to keep the brat cats off of it is no easy job.
I had to scrape a few bugs off while it dried outside.

Flow, you're giving me bad news ce soir... We just got new kitty 'bout a month ago you know. First feline in the home & working well with dominant canine population.

However, I didn't factor feline equation into crafting on decision to bring it home. Did you see his pix yet?

CoCo if you would like one painted red, just say the word.

WillowW I will be looking forward to seeing your gourd art.

Thanks Molly but your gourds are doing very well this year...you just go girl!
I have found some new apple gourds on the vine but they are still small but hoping that they will get big enough before the frost, keeping my fingers crossed.

Morph what a lovely little gourd you have there lol, I just couldn't help it. Such a beautiful baby, and Willow is just as pretty as baby.

Why thank you, Wind ~ lol! Sorry about the temporary shift of the thread. I think we're back on track now ☺

We're all growing such different gourds this year. I think it's so much fun!

Here's my long handled dipper...

Shucks, I went back to the top of this thread and saw that you put a measuring tape next to yours. I'll do that (hopefully) and get a size on it. It's really DS's gourd. When we visited Mt. Gilead for all of 15 minutes, he was amazed by these. So, after lots of research, I found someone that sold the EXTRA long handled dipper gourds. I have no idea what he's going to do with it if it dries properly and all...
