    What can you do with a Snake gourd after it has grown?

    I grew gourds this year for the first time in a long time. Along wiht the regular types of gourds I grew snake gourds.  They are about three to four feet long and as much as three inches in diameter. Some are straight and some are curved. I dont' think they will be a good bird house.  Any other ideas on how to use them once they dry out?

    What about sawing one in half, lengthwise? This will give you two bird feeding troughs. You could mount them on a wood post using nails, or you could hang them. To hang them, drill three or four small holes in the bottom of each, thread the holes with sturdy string or chain, bring up the strings or chains and secure them together so that the feeder will be level when suspended, then hang the feeder where ever you like from the point where you secured the strings or chains together. I'd think the long curved gourds would make fascinating feeders!
