Pumpkins, gourds, and winter squash come in so many shapes and sizes. These are some of our smaller gourds and squash and a couple of the pumpkins, the larger gourds are being used for an event so a better photo will have to wait. Although they are grown next to each other, with the same soil and water, the swan and dipper gourds far out grew our pumpkins and butternut squash this year. We still have enough pie pumpkins for a few batches of pumpkin bars and now that Thanksgiving is so close it won’t be long before the next tray is made.
Fun gourd fact: Gourds were domesticated in South America before edible squash.
Happy Halloween everyone!
