Remember the gourds I was drying, or at least trying to? The back patio started stinking with this funky sour/rotten smell and I knew that I had my answer...small gourds do NOT like being dried. Some nasty black mold started covering them as well as mushy stinky parts that turned unnatural shades of gray and green (with some fuzzies on them that I didn't even WANT to know about).
Ok, all together now...1...2...3...EWWWWWWWWWW GROSSSSSSSSSS!!!
