Just another day

Listed this over on Etsy

Between the rain and rumors of snow, running outside to bring my baby gourd seedlings in and everyday life, not much is getting done. Babies were in a cold frame and probably would have been OK...but.. better safe then sorry. I even had to bring a cold frame in! It was either that or the cats would have destroyed my babies.

You know I am getting things done, I have a little asembley line going painting gourds while dirty gourds soak in the tub.

Yes, I have been washing gourds! OH! How I hate washing gourds but, I can't get those lazy cats to wash them so it's up to me. As I said before...I am a gourd hoarder. I am trying to break this habit, really I am! I am painting more gourds, I sort of fell away from gourding and was hoarding! I have listed several batches of my egg gourds on eBay.... more gourds to come. Figured sell them and pay for this years seed, dirt and fertilizer. Gourds are heavy feeders. Have I bored you yet? OK! I will stop my rambling!

It's time they left the nest!

It's time they left the nest. Selling some of my babies! No not my kids....hmmm that's a thought..... OK! OK!......Gourds! Gourds! Gourds! I have listed some of my egg gourds on Ebay. I hoard gourds....Yep, I a gourd hoarder. I just seem to not want to let go! After I start them from those seed....fuss over them, water them...yes, I even talk to them...oh I am not normal. We won't even go into the 'sex in the gourd patch'! NO! Not me! I go down into the gourd patch....down near the night! Spooky! And with a paintbrush I pollinate them. If they are not pollinated you get no gourd! Gourd only bloom at night. Sometimes I just grab that male flower and rip his little peddels off and..... scared yet? Search Hauntedswampdesigns on Ebay for these gourds!

The Day of a Dirty Gourd

A day of the gourd bath..... One tub of dirty gourds.... need a scrubbing.
But first they need to soak to loosen up that grime! I wish I would had taken a picture of that dirty water that happened between the soaking and cleaned gourds! Icky!!!! So here they are all clean taking a quick bleach water bath before being dryed! When cleaning gourds work in small batchs. These took over two hours to scrub!
