Lovely Loofahs!

Look at these beauties!

This is my second attempt at growing loofahs in our cool climate. The growing season here is very short (summer basically) before the vines die off with the first frost of the season. Last year they only got to about 10cm in length before the frost got them as I planted them way too late. This year I started growing them early in the greenhouse and had eight plants but killed six and so am left with two. But these two seem to be growing great guns, especially seeing there is *hopefully* another month of growing before the first frost - I might actually get loofahs this year!
