Already growing peas, carrots and kale? Well, how about growing a gourd basket to put them all in?! Otto and Graham Ottoson of Gourdlandia will discuss some of the tricks involved in producing a hearty, carvable crop of cucurbit containers! Seed sources, pest management, drying, and a little bit about crafting will be discussed. The Ottosons are recent winners of the national Jim Story competition, the American Gourd Society's annual gourd manipulation contest.
