Loofah's Part II

Posted on June 2, 2012 at 10:05 4 Comments

So, you can peel your green/yellowing loofahs straight away or let them dry out more, I like to dry them out completely before peeling as it makes it much easier to do. The skin just falls away.

The benefit of peeling the fruit before it's completely dry is that the sponge stays light in colour (less discolouration).

While drying naturally the fruit can get rotted spots or stung by insects or just be darker in general.…


Loofah/Luffa/Sponge Plant

Hi Everyone

I wanted to share one of my lastest gardening adventures which is to grow loofah sponges.

They are the fruit from a tropical vine from the cucumber family.

As they are super hardy in our hot summer sun I decided to grow them on a trellis of my main veggie bed to shade and cool some other things that wouldn't have coped otherwise...…


A busy January Day in the Garden

Posted on January 9, 2012 at 13:41 1 Comment

As Matty was busy working on (playing with) his car yesterday, I took the opportunity to get stuck into the garden and, in particular the compost bin.

It is a job that I tend to put off and off as its quite yuck and stinky but also exciting once I dig down a bit and find the black gold hiding below with that beautiful earthy smell and so many worms!

I have a 2 bay compost bin. In a perfect world 1 side would be full of wonderful rich compost that I can use to my hearts content…


Garden Update November 2011

I thought I would add an update of my garden works since the Garden Visit in October 2011. 

A garden visit is a wonderful motivational tool to help get your garden into shape and producing as much as possible, I highly recommend hosting one for this reason along although it's also great to share your ideas and excitements as well as get some suggestions and comments from other gardeners.…

Darn Sundays are the worst day for me Robyn needs the car for work.  I might work something out.  I have been given a still, and made some lemon hydrosol from lemongrass.

This would go quite well in a soap.  :)

My pumpkin has very few male flowers on it at the moment too. I seem to remember reading something about the temperature affecting the amount of male to female flowers produced.

Are you sure it was this Gabrielle you needed? Happy to be friends, but I know nothing about management meetings???

who is enthusiastic. Really good to see.

Happy gardening, See you at future events.
