Post #6195991

This gourd is the only big one I got this year, it rotted and caved in, in the most awful way. Well, I've had it on my mind for a very long time and it has been dry for awhile now. This is how it came out!

It was growing and the tile layers here dumped all their grout out of their buckets into my garden, then it stopped and started to rot and just caved in. I did save all the seeds and it dried but has some scarring. It is 20 inches long and about 20 inches around, I just know it would have gotten a lot bigger if not for this mishap.

I broke the stem off while working on it, but will glue it back on this week, it is going to class with me tomorrow. I don't know if I will patina it black or not. I might do that in class.
