Yippeee, first loofah ready!

My loofah's have been lying out on the sun (in between the rains) and the first one is ready.

The outside went yellow and soft and then I could peel it. This left the fibrous, but still wet, insides.

After a couple more days in the sun, being turned every now and again, it was completely dry.

Today I shook out the seeds and we have lots to share.

I am quite keen to cut it up and next time I make soap, pour some into the loofah before it sets...

Oh I can't wait for Spring to plant my own loofahs!! And the soap inside the loofah is such a great idea too!
