This year, my garden has been a little bit behind on it’s growing cycle. Instead of receiving pumpkins and gourds in October and November around Halloween and Thanksgiving, we had gourds popup in December right before Christmas.
We had so many different size and shaped gourds that we decided to pick them and learn how to dry them out for crafting and decoration.
According to wikiHow there a several ways to dry gourds:
Method 1 of 5: Drying Gourds in the Field
Method 2 of 5: Drying Gourds off the Vine
Method 3 of 5: Hanging Gourds to Dry
Method 4 of 5: Greenscaping Gourds
Method 5 of 5: Cleaning Gourds after They are Dried
for more detailed information about these methods visit the wikiHow page about drying gourds.
Have a happy New Year!
