Watch a Maine garden ‘artist’ make a tunnel of gourds in 35 days

It took just 35 days for a Maine TikTok user to transform his garden of gourds from moderately successful to something resembling a portal to a dimension of heavy vegetation.

In a time lapse-fast forward mashup video, the user gourdfarmer — who is Aaron Letourneau, a self-described gourd farmer and artist — takes viewers on an accelerated tour of his gourd tunnels over 35 days.

On day one, the plants look a bit small. By day 35, heavy vines are growing up, over and through a series of high tunnels made out of wire fencing. Inside, lush leaves create shady passages where gourds of several shapes, sizes and varieties hang from above.
