There’s something kind of decadent about growing gourds.
You can’t eat them. They don’t serve any real practical function. They’re just, well, gourd-geous.
Gourds come in a variety of sizes, colors, shapes, and textures. Even if you don’t find a particular gourd attractive, you will almost certainly find it interesting.
For a lovely fall centerpiece, spill a bunch of your favorites out of a cornucopia or other basket.
