My gourd is having a baby.

So for the third summer in a row I have grown birdhouse gourds. They are very fast growing, they can quickly turn into a large vine. They are so fun to grow. Next year I plan on doing it on some kind of trellis or arbor for fun and to save space. This year was not a large crop but I did get these two nice size ones. One got a touch of frost so was rotting a bit from the top. I snapped off the top of it and found a surprise. It was growing a baby inside. I am not sure what to do from here but I hope to keep it alive. I thought this was so neat, I wanted to share.
