Our first loofah! I only got two plants this first year and one I accidentally yanked out while weeding (dur) and so I lost it. The remaining plant is currently giving me a total of two sponges, one that I picked and am drying, the other is still on the vine. I'm going to let the second one dry while connected to the plant. I do have a lot of blossoms and I think that I will get some more fruits this year from this fast grower. I'm excited to grow more of this next year and produce a whole bunch of sponges for kitchen and bath.
