How to Save This Year's Gourds for Next Year


Gourds dry beautifully and can be used for many years for decorating. The process is really easy! Every year after Thanksgiving I put my fresh gourds in my dehumidfied basement and forget about them until the next fall. Then I clean them, stain them, and they are then ready to be used forever.
