I was reading about a luffa. It was asked of people “ does it come form the sea” I actually did not know. After research and reading it comes form a plant - Patula. When as a young fruit it is eaten and cooked with rice. A soup is made with chicken and noodles. It is used paired with misua, thin salted noodles. So it is a vegetable when green. But once it is dried and matured - the skin is peeled and used as a scrubber , Luffa ( Loofa)

You can grow luffa. There are many farms that grow this plant. It is a member of the cucumber family. It can be grown from seeds. You only need one vine . The early blooms are yellow.

Until tomorrow…
