Gourds on the lam

June 22, 2010

I took a peek behind my fence and gourd tower and found that an admirable attempt to escape the confines of cohutt’s fence was in progress.

I encouraged them to rethink their strategy and focus on the fence lest the neighbor’s teenage son decapitates them with his old lawn mower.

Meanwhile, the vines are doing pretty well inside the fence and my bamboo tepee trellis is now officially a gourdish living Christmas tree. These plants are not shy; consider that the fence is 8′ in the middle

The little gourds I posted a few days ago have browned and wilted; a successful pollination still hasn’t happened yet as far as I can see.
