The larger gourds weighed in at about six pounds each, and they were harvested last week. They are now weighing around four and a half pounds as they are drying out. It will take another three months to dry them fully. I use the gourds for reproduction stone age objects. In this case, I am going to make water flasks, dart holders and bowls. The gourds are cut using flint blades and finished with fibre strings and wittled wooden parts. below are a couple of flasks that I made earlier.
