Now I'm not just talking about rotting I'm talking about how to protect your decorative gourds from animals. I know I'm not the only person to have set up some decorative gourds on their stoop or porch in the last few weeks, and I also know I'm not the only person have some gourds missing, too.

My girlfriend bought a bunch a few weeks ago and she set them up right by the doorway, like most do, well it took us a few days to notice that a few were missing. At first I thought, "darn kids stealing my gourds", but it actually makes more sense to think, "those darn squirrels and rabbits stealing my gourds!" So how do you stop animals from stealing your gourds, all while protecting your gourds from rotting? There are actually a few easy things to do cheap and safely for everything.
