Bird House Design: Bottle Gourd

We decided to turn our bottle gourds into Bird Houses. This took about a year to make from seed to the final bird house build. They are easy to grow and convert into a single room bird casa with a little bit of work. Zoe painted them and I help with the parental stuff and the bird house design.

This was a great project for all of us. Any bird nest around your house will provide a safe habitat for the neighborhood birds.

For this project you will need a 2″ hole saw, a small drill bit, a drill, weather proof paint, plastic string and patience.

You can also drill a few holes in the bottom for drainage to keep help reduce flooding inside the gourd.

Guffa Luffa – Seed Give Away – The Ultimate Gourd

We picked up some Luffa Gourd Seeds from the Fort Smith Lawn and Garden Show. I planted them thinking they were just your average gourd seeds that you can make bird houses out of. After researching them I realized that these seeds are more special than I originally thought.

The luffa gourd can be dried out and use the inside to clean dishes, your skin, grill, or any surface that you can SOS pad on. The luffa gourd is biodegradable and environment friendly.

We will contact you after one week thru YouTube’s PM System to notify that you where to send a SSE.

Good Luck
