Not Sure What You Need?
I’ve always wanted an edible organic garden, but didn’t think I could do it alone.
When I started to look around for help, Jack with Urban Abundance came highly recommended. Jack was very responsive and made suggestions to come up with a plan that would make it easy to succeed. Jack and the team are genuinely good people, very knowledgeable, and their passion shows in their workmanship. They installed avocado trees, berry bushes, two preserved cedar beds with a variety of plants, drip irrigation, and rabbit fencing. I’m very pleased with the way it turned out and look forward to the harvest. Thanks again for the great experience!
WHAT'S IN SEASON?
Loofah is a gourd that grows as a vine. It is an annual so it'll only go for a year or so, then you'll want to seed another one the following season since it grows and produces so well!
During the end of Feb / March each year, we plant seeds from our harvest from last year. In spring, I'll watch them quickly climb a tree or a huge fence line. Later in the summer, you'll see them start to flower and fruit all over! You can harvest young, green fruits and it makes an amazing zucchini alternative dish!! Such a good texture and really easy to prepare. Zucchini's are sometimes hard to grow here in humid South Florida , so this is the perfect solution!
Not only can you eat them, but you can harvest them older, brown and those dried out gourds are perfect exfoliating sponges! You do have to clean them in a slightly-sanitized solution, so it's clean and won't break down in the shower. Also, keep them dry when not using it! It will last much longer.
This is an amazing plant to grow here in the subtropics. We are excited to share it with you!
