Loofah Seed and Giveaway.

There are little bowls, jars, packets, and dishes of seed scattered about my house. Seeds are fascinating and beautiful as well as a reminder of the potential that lies within the seed and within ourselves. For good or bad the potential is there.

Luckily for us, these seeds have all good potential. I promise this is not a seed offering to my statue of the goddess of crop fertility. It's just a jar of seeds on my kitchen window sill by my "stern woman" carving.
Here are hundreds and hundreds of seeds I harvested from only a few of these...

Loofahs! And on the vine there are close to 100 more loofahs. Once the loofahs are dry they make the perfect compostable sponges. You can even eat the fruit while it is still very young. Lord knows how many seeds I am going to get overall. So, I would like to share my abundance with you. If you would like some seeds, please leave a comment. I will mail seeds to up to ten people. If I get more than ten comments I will have a drawing. The give away ends on Friday, and I will have the drawing if necessary on Friday.

I'm very interested! I'm not sure if they will grow here or where I'm going to be living by spring though. We will be in the San Antonio area. I'm definately going to have to think about having a give away on my own blog.

If I'm not to late, I would definitely appreciate your generosity of you sharing your Loofah seeds. I would be planting these in an urban garden setting where we work and share the fruits of our work within the inner city of Atlanta. I believe the Loofah sponges would be a little something extra to share in the weekly harvest distribution. Thanks, Mike

Kristi,
Just found your website this morning after watching a segment on loofah sponges and seeds. Is it too late to get in on the seed giveaway?
Wondered if you have tried growing birdhouse gourds?
