LUFFA

started these plants back in April.  they have just started to produce fruit.  and a month later comes FROST!  Last year, they didn’t even make it to frost, they got to this stage and critters ate the fruit right away.   Supposedly, when young, these can be eaten like zucchini.  But when mature, and dry, the produce Luffa/Loofa~Am hoping that being in the greenhouse, they will get through the frost portion of our program and then get the Indian Summer to finish developing.  They last a long time, even used as a daily scrubby in the kitchen!
