SHALLOTTE—As Gerald Hewett stood in his back yard, a chortle arose from rows of gourds suspended on frames high overhead.
“They’re getting fussy now,” Hewett said of the purple martin swallows that fly into his yard every spring to nest in the gourd houses he grew and crafted just for them.
The 70-year-old said he’s been cultivating martin houses for 60 years, using gourds just like Native Americans did.
