Gourd house

I've been outside enjoying this rare 65 degree March day.  Peas, lettuce, chard, mizuna, mache and spinach have been planted.  The fruit trees have been pruned.  I just wanted to share this bird house made from a gourd.  It was made by an artisan that sold at my Farmer's Market last year.  She is incredibly talented and funny as can be.  My daughter begged for one instantly.  We're really hoping to get a nice family of birds to move in soon.

That reminds me that I have gourd seeds to start. Can't wait to see your new visitors!

Daisy, what kind of gourds do you grow?

Laura, I love to look at it. It's so pretty.

Gourds are something I've never grown, but I would sure love to have a few more bird houses. Seems like it would be easier to grow them than build them!
