You can see in these pics that there was not a gourd pod for the seeds in the second gourd.
They were contained in a papery membrane and some loose in the gourd. Compare pics from earlier posts of the first gourd.
I much prefer the pod and so does my nose!!!
Here the insides of each gourd have been covered to make the gourd stronger.
Once I finish the first gourd I will start on the second.
I am doing a Sunflower theme for the first but I don't know yet what I will do on the second.
Pics of the finished gourd coming shortly.
