Out of My Gourd!

It is that time of year, planning for what and where to plant for spring. We are expanding the gourd production this year so we are trying to decide how large an area to work for the gourds. 

We make crafts from the gourds and sell them to others for crafting, and the seeds are collected out for next years crop. We also sell some seeds, so if for sale or planting we still have to take some time to glean them and count them to package for resale or stock. We have to decide jsut how many we will  need to save for planting ourselves.

The smaller gourds can be grown near the house on trellis setups, but larger gourds such as kettle, apple, basketball and canteen gourds need to have a large prepared area in the field. The ones near the house can easily be reached by a waterhose, the ones planted in field require a little more effort for irragation. 

Allthis planning just makes me impaitent for the arrival spring, never was much of one for winter.
