It takes a very long time to get luffas to grow this big. But when it does, then you can use it to wash almost anything. And this luffa gourd still hasn’t grown all the way!
It takes a couple of months for them to get this big, and it’s not done yet.
Thank you to everyone on the Organic Gardening boards who helped me get a thousand seeds for my birthday in February! It took us an hour to sort through all the packages we got from all over the country (and some from Canada).
