What are the pros? Easy, cute, crafty
What are the cons? Ramble
Love these little gourds. A friend of ours made a very cute set of salt & pepper shakers with these but you could use them for any crafty idea. I've thought about using them for doll heads with a rag body.
They are easy and prolific, our crop this year are volunteers from a gourd that got plowed under several years ago. I let the plants ramble across the garden (and ramble they will) and have tons of gourds. They grow very well on a trellis or just thrown over on an old fence row and are very attractive growing in that fashion.
Kids and adults love them. A wonderful old heirloom.
