Framing a Dream

This is the beginning of a gourd man's vision. Old timbers. Nails. Sweat.

Gourdhenge: It must be sturdy enough to withstand high winds, lashing rainstorms, and the unbelievable weight of many gourds. It must be tall enough so that long-handled dipper gourds can stretch to lengths of over six feet.

We aren't talking about any old gourds here. We're talking prize winners.

  1. Wow! I am never too old to learn. Those are some awesome gourds, and that is quite a structure you have built. I can hardly wait to see pictures of gourds growing on it.

  2. Holy cow! I am smitten with that structure! You will have many, many award winning gourds for now. For sure! I am going to show this to my husband. Great work!

  3. Wow, prize winners. That new arbor for gourdhenge should do the trick. He is hooked on gourd like people here are hooked on their prize winning pumpkins.

  4. Wow! Your man really loves his gourds, to build them such a castle!
