Thought I’d plant a few gourd seeds and see what would happen. This happened. These beauties are ripe for sketching. I especially like the Daisy variety, but each one has its own appeal, even the dumpy, warty white ones. Do you see the lone little orange pumpkin and 2 little white ones hiding in there? I also planted some smaller varieties of pumpkin this year but they didn’t perform as well as the gourds, sadly. I think the cucumber beetles and the odd early summer weather had something to do with it. The choice of shirt was purely accidental. I wasn’t planning to look like a large gourd standing there in the background, but that also happened. Life is funny that way.
