so here i am, with a pile of gourds. i didn't intend to plant these, you see. this plant was supposed to be a crazy productive zucchini grown from seeds that my coworker saved from his crazy productive zucchini last year. but, apparently it was some sort of hybrid and got cross-pollinated because this is what we both ended up with this year, instead of a boatload of zucchini.
so i ask you, gardening friends, what in the world am i supposed to do with all of these gourds? just put them in a bowl and let them look pretty? i'm gathering that's pretty much all gourds are good for, but i'm open to any and all suggestions.
(alternatively, i could feed them to my dog, because apparently he thinks they look mighty tasty!)
