Did you know you could grow loofah sponges? I was so surprised when my friend gave me one (along with a pretty soap as a gift) and told me that she had grown it. What? I didn’t know you could grow these sponges! The loofah was still in its shell so when I arrived home I carefully peeled the outer layer and there was a perfect loofah. It was also full of seeds! They easily shook out into a container.
Want to learn how to grow broccoli? It's a cool-season, hardy vegetable which is quick growing. It took 60 days in my garden to go from seedling to table. It survived three consecutive nights of frosty weather with no problem. I harvested my first head yesterday and now I know what broccoli is supposed to taste like! Delicious. When cooked, it turned a bright, vibrant green.
