...Well, the HUGE outlay I had started for the 2008 season, back in March indoors, and after debacle after debacle, resulted in three healthy (COMPARATIVELY) swan gourd plants on my back fence, that have been producing endless male blossoms and rare females. Most common are "gourdlets" that have been "starting" WITHOUT the female flower blossoming/getting pollinated yet! And because the gourdlet is not viable, it starts to shrivel and die off, taking the unopened female blossom with it... (see pic for an example of one of the "gourdlets - or "gourd-NOTS")...
