WHAT ARE GOURDS?

WHAT ARE GOURDS?

Over the years I have heard this question so many times. If you are curious about gourds, a brief explanation is: gourds are a natural grown plant, that is planted in the spring, grows all summer to develop into beautiful "fruit" that is left on the vine at the end of the growing season and will harden over the fall and winter months.  After this time the fruit will appear to rot, get moldy and dry to a lighter weight. Now it can be cut from the vines, moved to a storage location and left to completely dry until spring of the next year, and then the dirt and mold is washed away from the outer surface.  What remains is a beautiful, hard shelled gourd that can be used for crafts, vessels, musical instruments or whatever you can imagine. If taken care of, Gourds will last for many years if stored properly.  A lot of hard work and some help from mother nature, goes into creating a gourd.  Requires a year to produce.  This is what makes them so special! 
PURPLE MARTIN HOUSES

PURPLE MARTIN HOUSES

It is not too late to put out purple martin houses.  Second year Martin scouts arrive later than the older martins, and they need a place to begin raising a new family.  All Purple martin houses and accessories  are on sale.  Make sure you have a place for them to nest. See our purple martin page
