Our gourds are finally covering our random piece of chain link fence in the backyard. We tore down the rest of the fence last year, but decided to keep this small section because we knew it would be handy for something... we just didn't know what. There is a compost bin behind the fence and the gourd vines do a good job of hiding it from view. Now that it has grown in, it is also providing a second "wall" to our outdoor living space. Our gourd tee pee is in the second photo, but we're not sure it is tall enough! It looks like the gourds are making a break for the power pole! The fruit is coming along nicely and it looks like we'll have an abundance of gourds!
