I ran across a pretty cool blog post the other day from GroovyGreen. It outlines how to grow your own luffa sponge. As the post says “Many people are surprised when they find out I grow my own Luffa sponges. Dont those come from the sea?, is the standard question to which I respond that the Luffa is a vegetable you can grow in your very own garden.”
Wow! I had no idea you could grow your own luffa. Pretty nifty. Be sure to check out the process and see pictures of this DIY project in action.
