Greetings from The Gourd Tunnel
One of the fun things we had growing at the arboretum this summer. Just make a framework of bamboo poles, plant some assorted gourd seeds along the bottom, add water, and let the fun begin. Oh, and watch your head as you go through!
My favorite thing in the tunnel was not a gourd, but the frilly little flower of one of the gourd varieties. That's the gourd, looking like an oversized stringbean, and the little white flower is next to it.
Lookit all the crazy little CurlyMcCues on that thing.
