"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

I spy with my little eye~something

green...
I planted 3 bird feeder gourd seeds in late June. I wasn't sure I would harvest any of the gourds because this year has been an interesting weather year, yet surprise~I ended up with six gourds. They are drying and I think I am going to paint them for the County Fair.

I love your gourds. I always want to plant some but never have. I tried lufa once and that didnt work. Please post the painted gourds.

Mickey raised some of the big goards to make Marten houses out of where we lived before he retired. I'd never seen green ones!! How neat!! I know you'll make something really special out of them for the fair.

Deebie- I also have luffa seeds!! I wanted to see if I could grow the gourds before I used the luffa seeds and so next year luffas!!

And I will answer the other part to you on your blog!

Susan-they are drying brown. I planted them late so they are still green but trust me they are turning.

As to what I going to paint them like, there are six of them with a tall one, one that looks like it has a skirt on, three the same size, and then the smallest one- which is an exact replication of the family! I love how this worked and I had nothing to do with it!!
As soon as I finish the drying, I will paint and reveal!
