Sometimes you have a question about a plant that is growing in your garden.
Take for example our luffas. This is the first time we had grown them. We were surprised by the big, bright yellow flowers with the faintly ruffled edges.
We know the plants produce separate male and female flowers. All the first flowers we saw were males. We wondered what a female luffa flower would look like.
A few weeks ago we finally saw the first female flower.
Then we wondered what the fruit would look like.
Slowly the fruit has been growing.
Right now the fruit resemble a zucchini squash. We are now wondering when it will be ready to harvest.
The whole process has been a mystery where nature has slowly revealed the answers. Sometimes it pays to wait.
