Birdhouse Gourd- Growth Update

It has been a while since I mentioned anything about the Birdhouse Gourds, so I figured now would be as good of time as any.

They have some female flowers now. In fact, I hand pollinated one yesterday.

But look at how prolific these things are. Especially for something I honestly didn’t think would grow past seed-leaf stage.

It is hard to capture just how amazed I am with them with just a few poor photos and sentences. I may work on a video of some sort. Until then, I’ll update again here when the first little fruits appear.
