Loofah Seed Givaway Ends Today

I can send seed to two more people if they wish. I'll send seed to the next two people who comment they desire so on this post as well. Just be sure to e-mail your mailing info.
To the eight people who would like some loofah seeds (The Quiet Life, Michelle, Tipper, Egghead, Vee, Melba, Ginger, and Betsy): Send your mailing information to me at kbrivero@yahoo.com and I will send them right out.

Plant the seeds in spring in a place where they are free to grow, on a chicken coop, a fence, a trellis, the old bus shell out back.....and you will have plenty of Loofah and seeds of your own. To eat, you harvest at about 8 inches. To use them for sponges, wait until they turn medium brown, peel the skin off, and shake out the seeds. Some people bleach them. I don't see the point. Just leave them out in the hot sun for a while to dry them completely. You can cut the long sponges into shorter lengths or rounds to use for different purposes.

Egghead - You live in a cold climate, so the vine probably would benefit from a head start in a peat pot before setting outside.

The Quiet Life - The seeds will most likely do wonderful in San Antonio.

Ingeborg - I'll have to check how much it would cost to send seeds to Europe. I've never mailed anything outside of the US. If you would like to mail me your info, I will check.

Melba, Ginger and Betsy - I'll give you yours when I see you.

Happy Growing!!!

Yay! Thank you so much and I will try to give them a head start. I do that with sunflowers as well but didn't this year.
