Good one Aussie, I shall be planting my own this season too. Looking forward to seeing how you go with the growing & making.Hi Kieth,
You've inspired and reminded me with your latest video on water bottles.
Its been on my list of things to do for ages, but yesterday I ordered a few packets of gourd seeds !
Spring is the time to plant, and the boy is keen too, so he'll be in charge of planting, watering etc ….
I'll let you know how we progress
My water bottle does not leak Edward, & I am an 18th century living historian. The bota bag is not authentic for my period persona.Keith if your water bottle leaks after making it, how to you expect to carry water to survive? Consider the bota bag, mate.

Well you just have to take care Edward. I did take a fall years ago in a Sheoak forest, & fell on my tinned iron canteen & dented it. That fall would certainly have broken my gourd water water bottle Edward. There are stronger period water bottles, but they are also heavy. Tinned iron is good but does not fit my persona. Half the fun is experiencing as closely as possible how these people lived in any particular period. I promise I shall try very hard not to fall & break my water bottle, or any body partsOh I see. I respect that. My apologies... I just thought if it cracked that easily, what if it hit a tree or something and you lost you're water. Water is a serious business in Australia, as you'd know. As far as I know though the bota bag has been used for centuries and still is in some parts of the world. Each to their own of course. I was just thinking of your safety. Cheers, Edward.
