Today was the day that we got the gourds and pumpkins in for the winter. The pumpkins we will start to use very soon, there are so many good ones this year that I will start to use them sooner so they do not go to waste. We grow the gourds so that the house has some colour in while we are in the depth of winter. I am very happy to report that we have another great crop of ‘Fig Leaf’ gourds. I do not remember sowing the seed for these and they are not in my note-book but I am very happy to see them back in the house.
