I live in the Foothills of South Carolina where I've grown hardshell gourds for over a decade. I farm about an acre of them with an annual yield of between 1500 and 2000 of them. Through some good tutoring from my mentor, Old Man Jud, and trail and error, I've had some measure of success. I currently grow about 20 varieties each season, including three strains I've bumbled my way to developing myself. Most recent is this year's MegaloApple Gourd (you can check out the gourd forum for a picture). In addition to gourds, I grow a small vegetable patch, and am starting to develop a liking for flowers. Must be reaching official "Old Fart" age...

I am working on a webpage devoted to gourd info, seeds and supplies. Should be functional soon!

I live in: United States
