Same thing with spaghetti squash. It has a tendency to get a bit tough if the squash are large.

Look at the price they're getting for luffa gourd innards. I'm going to have to try growing some of these.

Oh my....costly little buggers aren't they?

As I said before, my luffa gourds were devoured by deer. BUT yesterday I found a straggly looking luffa gourd vine that traveled off to hide in the weeds. And guess what? I found one large luffa gourd and and one medium luffa gourd. Now I gotta figure out how to make them look like the luffa sponge photo you posted.

Turning a luffa gourd into a sponge will be a first for me. I'll post the results after I finish.

Somebody's got to know how to do this. It will be a cold day in H E double hockey sticks before I pay $15 for a luffa. $3 for a pack of seeds... yes... but not $15 for a gourd. Post your photos and how you did it if you pull it off.
