I have them all ready to mail...but I was in the hospital yesterday ...got home a bit ago from Tucson...they were to put a stent in my artery...but couldn't do it...so he shaved a bit of junk out with a roto=rooter...so I'm good for a few more miles. I'll get them mailed this week...the first time I leave the house. Jo

Have extra luffa gourd seed from last yr., to share if anyone still needs them. I found that they were super easy to grow & harvest.

I use these sponges not only to exfoilate my skin, but in the kitchen as scrubbies. These sponges makes your skin super soft and smooth! I've spent lots of money on products to get this type of softness and all I needed was a luffa sponge. I'm hooked on these gourds and will always grow them.

When I grow these I just let them dry naturall. The died skin peels off easily. Then you shake the seeds out and share them with your friends.
