I have ordered gourds via the Internet and am always delighted to receive my box filled with the marvels of the plant world. However, there is nothing like going to a gourd farm and selecting your own gourds.
Since moving to California, one of my favorite places to visit is the Welburn Gourd Farm in Fallbrook, California. The farm is located deep in a canyon where the asphalt turns into a dirt road. Though the drive can be long and arduous, the journey’s well worth it. The sight of fields filled with gourds and the racks of dried gourds beckoning with infinite creative possibilities is simply wonderful and exhilarating!
