Gourd banjos are coming back

Well, I’m back. I can’t stay away from banjos for long. I took a break from building banjos the past few months. I got a real paying job for the remainder of my summer, then it was back to school. But I did manage to grow a great crop of promising gourds. There are about 25 beautiful full-sized and perfectly round gourds drying in the backyard. They will be dry to use in the coming months. I can’t wait to get started! Keep an eye on this blog, I’ll have a ton of gourd banjos for sale this early spring. This is a picture I took with my cellphone. Hard to tell but there were a handful of gigantic moths pollinating the flowers. These moths were amazing. They looked/moved exactly like humming birds except had an obvious moth-head, with a wing-span of 4-5 inches.
