Garden in the Sky

We have been trying to grow some veggies and the only place we have dirt is on our porch in pots.This porch is on the 2nd story of our house.One of the things I planted was tiny gourds.The pics are some of the blooms from this plants.They are huge and bright yellow.But, I had not seen one gourd till yesterday when I was working tin the yard.I was under the porch and when I looked up, to my surprise was a vine of one plant hanging over the side and at bottom was two little gourds.
This beautiful blooms do no last very long. Later in the day they were all shriveled up.I love growing things.I hope to someday have a greenhouse so I can have fresh veggies all the time.

Vicki, good luck with your gourds. We are coming to Eureka either this weekend or the weekend of the 5th. We got married there 8 years ago on Sept 1st. Maybe we can visit the cave while we're there. Are there any good shops anymore? I haven't been there since 2000. Tell me the sweet spots!! Maybe we'll even see you at the cave! Do you ever work on Saturdays?
