I bought and planted some birdhouse gourd seeds four years ago. I had a nice crop. Some of the gourds are still sitting in my family room.
They're decorative, great conversation pieces, and still in my family room because I've had 5000 other things to do rather than making them into birdhouses. As long as they stay dry, they should be fine for a while.
Since I have a supply of birdhouse gourds, I haven't planted any more seeds.
So, imagine my surprise when I discovered this growing in the wild area.
I think there are a few more hanging in the crazy sunflower patch.
I guess I'll have a few more birdhouse gourds to add to my collection.
