A different angle of the arbors and you can see the gourds are on the outside as well as the inside of the arbors. If you click on the photo to enlarge it you will see that each gourd is sitting on a small platform. These were scrap pieces of particle board from a construction site and I used some old cord to attach them to the arbors. Gourds are ninety percent water and they can be heavy hanging from any structure and risk falling without support, the wire fencing that is supporting them can also cut through the vine. The boards insure that the gourds will have a nice flat bottom for sitting as well.
