Last week was eventful week here in the Eastern United States. First, an earthquake and then hurricane Irene. I was really worried about my new venture in gourd growing as I wondered if the gourds themselves and the vines would make it thru the pounding sheets of rain and winds over a span of eight hours.

However, I am very happy to report … the gourds are doing well and all stayed in tact except for a few leaves and a rotted old tree which fell to the ground thankfully missing our home. Here are some pics of my beautiful gourds ranging in color from dark green to golden-yellow!
