Welcome to Kasin Hunter's 
2001 Gourd Garden - The Fall

Walk though my archway, beneath the swollen gourds and soft leaves. Welcome to my Fall 2001 garden.

Some areas around the country are now in their frosty times. We still have 90 degree days here in Tucson, Arizona, USA. I took some shots of the gourd garden which is still growing strong, putting on flowers and fruits.

At this time of year, the gourd garden is a strange mixture of older, matured, dried fruit and fruit that is just coming on. Many of these late bloomers, like the zucca won't make it to maturity before the first frost; but many of the gourds already established during mid-summer will mature fine. Here's a few pics.

Late comers to the garden - baby zuccas. It is too late for them to mature. I saved some seeds for next spring so I can try them earlier next year.

Here's the same zucca a week later.

A trio of mid-summer gourds drying now. See how the stems are almost brown? These will be ready to pick in a couple more days. These are smaller gourds, maybe six inches diameter each.

Here is a good example of how Fall is in Southern Arizona. There is one gourd shown here that is already dried from the Spring planting and two more not yet matured. It is now October 28th. This is typical gourd garden growth for our area.
