Gourd sprouts!

The first batch of gourds have sprouted in the old water tanks. These tanks have been filled with straw the sprinkled with high nitrogen bat guano. A 6 inch layer of last years potting soil is on top of that for starting the seeds. The tanks either leak already or have a drain. New tanks are catching rain water nearby to keep it watered.
