|May 22nd. Only one week after planting the loofah seed.|
|Same loofah plant in early October|
|One month after planting late June|
September 11th. First Flower!!!
|That morning I went outside and had to RUN back in for my camera. I had given up all hope of getting a blossom |
but there it was. I thought "It's too late in the season to get a loofah but at least I got a blossom". I was wrong!!!!
|This is the wall today (3 weeks later) filled with beautiful bright yellow blosoms! Better yet...|
|Attached to the base of the blossoms are little loofah! Each mini loofah is anywhere from 2" - 3" long.|
|This 7" loofah is growning in the small planter pot|
|This 9" loofah is growning on the loofah arch wall.|
Below (thank you GoogleVoice) is my text conversation with Bob from this morning
