Failure

I keep telling my children not to fear failure; failure is how we learn.  The garden is a good teacher in this respect.

I had read that bottle gourds could be left on the vine to cure, but ours must not have been mature enough because as soon as we got a couple of frosts and some wet weather, they began to rot.

Today we rescued the last two that haven’t yet developed mushy spots.

Gourds seven weeks ago.
