We have corn on the cob.
Because planting squash and pumpkins in the same garden produces lots and lots of gourds.
Did you know that?
Consider that your educational lesson of the day.
We didn't know that. Until we planted them and they overtook our garden to the point of Momma being afraid to walk through it out of fear of finding wildlife at her feet.
So I send my kids instead. Because that is what kids are for, right?
Nothing against gourds, but....umm....what is their purpose?
I mean other than using them for fall decorating, they seem like they are just the forgotten food.
I feel so bad cooking up all of our other treasures while I watch my gourds sitting in a basket.
Just decorating my counter.
Just wait until my kids paint faces on them in a month or so.
Then my poor gourds will be the ugly, fat kid with braces and glasses sitting in the corner of the room.
Or something like that.
