Just Call Me Gourd Guy

I posted in the spring about my gourds...Well in a couple of spots where I planted them  they have done remarkably well.  I just planted them in native soil with no preparation whatsoever except removing a few stones....Gourds will not not produce well if overly fertilized...These have never been... This vine alone has 14 gourds and the other three combined have 13 with more coming on.  Most of the gourds are big enough for bird houses but so far none are really quite large enough for Purple Martin houses.  Still it is a great joy to grow them.  My dad never had such luck.
