A gourd grower for more than two decades, Dave Stilwell, St. Marys, earned several ribbons recently at the 2007 Ohio Gourd Festival in Greenville. The big thrill was winning the blue ribbon for the heaviest gourd, a bushel basket variety weighing in at 138 pounds. He said it felt more like 200 pounds as he was trying to get it in his van.
