These gourds are from our garden -from the compost pile actually- and are probably second or third generation sprouting from the seeds of previous seasons' discards. I bought some decorative gourds a few years ago and haven't had to buy any since. As long as I keep throwing the old ones on the compost they keep coming back every year. The pumpkin, though, is from the farmer's market and was carved up into a jack-o-lantern for Halloween.
We didn't get many trick-or-treaters on account of all the rain. Thanks a lot Sandy. Now our garden's a mess. No serious damage, just a mess.
