Here is bottom up view. Just a few of the gourds. Hope you get a laugh or at least a smile out of my gourd tree.

Erin, the only caution is to leave the gourds on the vine until they are brown and very light. If you pick them green they will rot. There is a method for picking them a little green and curing them, but it's better to leave them. Don't know whether you knew this! Also, IF you're a novice, don't panic when you see mold. It's part of the process.
