hard shelled gourds

here are my gourds, two different varieties, from bloom to maturity. one of the vines seems to be dying already and the gourds are turning brown. hopefully they are just starting to dry out, this is the first time i have grown them and i know you are supposed to leave them on the vine until it is totally dead. i don't really know what i will do with them but they are fun to watch and the plant itself is beautiful with all it's curly q tendrils and big green leaves.

It's fun seeing the gourds from blossom to maturity. The blossoms look huge!
