The Virtual Gourd Garden
|(Fall Start Option One)|
|You very carefully planted your gourd seeds in September|
-- but alas!
A neighboring hickory tree sheds its leaves all over your gourd garden. Somehow, the decomposing mash results in the death of your new gourd sprouts. So sorry! (You're considering gathering some new wood for your BBQ!)
Fall may NOT be the time of year to plant gourd seeds.
