"Bugs gourd farm is in GA and ships.  She is very reasonable.  Tell her I sent you!  Fernsink gourd is in Chiefland, they are on the web, but call first as their stock is now limited.  She also ships."

I began with an interest in gourd art, however, after starting Fernsink Gourds as a grower, there has been little time for artwork.
I hope to do more art in the future.

Treading Water!

Yes, I said treading water, just trying to keep my head above the water; or so it seems!. That is how I feel, some days, with so much going on all the time. I know I am not alone, since many that I talk to are feeling the same way. Whatever happened to the good ole days when life was slower and there was always time to enjoy family, friends, neighbors, etc. I have a feeling that all the technology we have added to our daily lives has somehow consumed all that extra time we had years ago.

This is amazing!

I decided to invite all my wonderful customers to be a part of what I felt would be a terrific network of gourders. I went out of town for a few days and returned to an awesome response of excited gourders who have joined the Gourd Art Enthusiasts! This is fantastic, and I get to see so many faces now, to go with names. And, I get to see what some of our gourds have become in the hands of these talented friends. You are the best! Thank you for joining.

Hi Barbara,

Thanks for adding me as a friend - hope to meet you at the gourd show. Also,   I plan to be up in Gainesville in the spring & looks like your farm is not too far from there so I am going to try and visit at that time.

Hey,  Barbara. It was great seeing you at the crafts festival. Your daughter is extremely creative. Speaking of festivals, where did you say the Palatka, Fla. Gourd Festival has moved to? Is it still in February? I hope you and your family are having a great holiday! I'll see you in the New Year when I come out to your farm to buy gourds.

Hi Barbara, What are the big leaves in the 14th picture growing gourds? I also like to cast cement leaves and always on the lookout for big leaves. I sent a message in your messages on this page about gourd seeds.
