I’m excited this summer my harvest included a bumper crop of loofah sponges. I’m looking forward to finding a venue to bring the loofah to market. Preparing them has included a few “harvest” parties and porch rocking with family. While growing, I’ve seen all different sorts of bees drawn to the loofah words: honey bees, sweat bees, bumble bees, and more. The posts I’ve seen on YouTube for harvesting loofah sponges shows farmers who have loofah that dried on the vine. In Georgia, I had to harvest the loofah before it dried on the vine due to the weather changes. For the first year to grow loofah, I’m thrilled at the results and I’m looking forward to growing them next year, too.
