It's always fun to try something new in the garden.

Like this luffa plant. It will grow luffas; you know, like the bathroom sponges. They are the fruit of this plant. Kind of like a gourd. They grow inside a papery husk, which can be removed to expose the sponge-like interior. If left on the vine until late summer, they come off dry and ready to use in the bathroom.

Pretty exciting, right?

So, here it is. Just starting out. It has lots of growing to do.
