Of all my posts about all my plants, who knew Climbing Okra would be the biggest hit?
Maybe it is that I offered seeds to my readers. (No more requests please.)
I am two years behind on my list for Luffa acutangula seeds.
Last year’s pods were feasted on by a tiny mouse.
I found it with its bottom sticking out of my largest pod.
I had to start two different sets of seeds this spring.
I planted the seedlings in three different locations.
I finally have a few pods big enough to eat.
No worries John P, Kevin K , Alley and Susan E , these first fruits will be saved for seed.
(You four can email your address to email@example.com. Nobody else please.)
I will let these pods get about a foot long, take them in to dry, then separate the seeds.
I will mail these out in October. No swaps or payments needed. I like to share.
All these gorgeous flowers in my garden and my most sought after plant is a luffa!
( I may post about the ants later. I must do more research first.)
