At the end of summer we harvest the loofah sponge, when the outer shell turns brown.
We peel off the outer brown shell and give them a good wash and let air dry.
On the bottom is loofah sponge after a washing and one cut ready to bathe with.
We grow our gourds here too. The gourd below was used in the old days, to rinse the soap off or sometimes smaller ones were used to drink out of.
At the end of summer we harvest the loofah sponge, when the outer shell turns brown. Below is a loofah sponge that was picked with its brown outer shell. In front of it is a loofah sponge with the brown outer shell half off. We shake the seed out of one end and save them to plant next spring.
