I recently discovered this website, about how to grow your own Luffas! I always thought that Luffas were made from some sort of sea sponge, but apparently they're actually a type of gourd and easy to grow in your garden! Upon finding this out, I just knew I had to try growing them this year and I am already imaging where I can plant them. I am thinking about putting a little picket fence around my vegetable garden, and I think my Luffa plant will look great growing along it.
Here are some photos I found online of some luffa plants.
A Luffa plant in all its glory!
When the plants mature and dry out, you just peel them and the Luffa is inside!
This is how I imagine my Luffa garden will look like.
These Luffa soaps are so pretty!
Well, I didn't think it was possible, but I am now more excited about my vegetable garden then ever! I really hope it warms up soon so I can start digging. I can't wait to blog about my growing garden!
