How do you dry birdhouse gourds?
I have a request to grow some birdhouse gourds next summer. I have never grown those before and wonder how you dry them?
well good luckWhatever type of gourd you are growing, it is ready for harvesting when the stems dry out and turn brown, Cut the gourds with a few inches of stem intact, Harvest all gourds before a hard frost. Immature gourds will not last long, but frost will ruin soft skin gourds entirely and even a light frost can alter the color of hard skin gourds and affect their ability to dry, Discard bruised and spoiled gourds. They will just begin to decay in storage.
