The mysterious vines in our yard have finally given birth.

We went on vacation for two weeks and came back to these.

GOURDS!

Lots and lots of inedible gourds.

funky mysterious gourds in my yard

I asked my mom how they got so huge while we were gone.

She watered them.

And all of the vines nearly doubled in length. They got so long my entire gate was actually blocked and I had to rearrange them all to grow somewhere out of the way.

Sure I’m disappointed it’s not something we can eat but the surprise of it all has been a lot of fun. And now I have one less Fall decoration to buy.
