GOURDS
Most children and as far as that goes, most older kids ( adults ) enjoy growing gourds. Gourds can be used in many ways.
Large gourds for birdhouses, crafts ( dried, cut, sawed, glued into lions, turtles, Etc. ) or birdhouse gourds can even be
painted to look like people. Smaller ones can be painted or used for crafts or fall decorations.
PLANTING: Fertile, well drained soil is best. In late spring or beginning summer, till up soil. Enrich with compost or fertilizer,
like Bradfield brand or other. Place seeds 1/2-1″ deep, 6-8″ apart in a row spacing of 4-5′. Keep weed free and control insects,
like cucumber beetle with Sevin or Hy-yield Garden & Pet dust. For control of squash bugs, a brick, your heel or a powerful
chemical like Vegetable Plus or restricted Perm-up will work. HARVEST: When gourds are fully matured and firm, not soft,
cut from vine. Wash with alcohol, chlorine or vinegar to kill any bacteria that may spoil gourds. Use for fall decorations or let
set in a cool, dry place for 6-12 weeks until dry and seeds are loose inside of gourd. Scrape off old dried skin by using a brush
and dish soap. Let dry. Paint and use for birdhouses or crafts. For Luffa gourds, let dry on vine. After harvest, soak gourd in
warm water and remove outer hard shell. Use insides as a natural sponge. PKT size about 1/4 oz. 1 oz/100′ of 2lb/acre.
