Excuse my ignorance but how do you grow a loofa ? Dont suppose you have any shower gel plants or shampoo climbers? Could make a fortune.

Haahahaha....! I believe with my luck with plants combined with your quick wit and creative thinking, we just might be able to become millionaires...lol. Or at least, have a fun time trying ! You crack me up.

Are they easy to grow? I can't say I've ever seen any plants or seeds for sale.

Flcrazy ~ watch it with the shampoo climbers and shower gel plants ~
Bonkers adds our special medication to everything.

It would be interesting to see pictures of the loofahs growing on the plant ~
provided we don't give away too much information to the Flowerpot People.

I know this.It is very good thing to scrub I think.When i was in nigeria i saw there in my nigerian's friend's house.

They are easy to grow Chrispook, but it is difficult for people in your hardiness zone to give the luffas time to ripen before frost turns them to mush.. lol

So do you grow your loofas for personal use...or do you give them away as gifts?

21 Sep, 2008

 

Well Flower you call them luffas we call them loofas . You say tomayto we say tomarto . You say crazy I say Terratoonie.! x ( and bonkers)

21 Sep, 2008

 

Lol...Bonkers, you certainly have a way with words, and just between you and me, I agree 100 %, she's crazy alright, crazy like a fox ! Wish I had half her quick wit . Pssst (Do you think I saved us from being kicked off the team ?) I kinda liked having the title, health consultant.
So far Lori, I've used one of them just to see what all the fuss was about, the rest have been sitting in the back of my bathroom cabinet, saving them for, I don't know what...lol. Maybe proof that I could do it, ..heck if I know...or maybe for exfoliating green wellie wearing feet, right terratoonie?

Think we may be in need of Mental health consultant - TT wouldn t want to lose you off the team.Now you ve got this special equipment for wellies.

Ah, BB, this is where you've been lurking.
LindaK has been searching for you.
She made a special trip to the Isle of Man,
photographing steam trains and mountain railways, hoping to spot you doing secret Wellie Olympic training for your chosen island team.

I knew you weren't there, because Claudia Winkleman on Strictly Come Dancing said (quote) "I don't know whether I'm being Bonkers".

All of which confirms that we need to keep Flcrazy very much in the team, with her trusty loofahs, to keep us in order.

Flcrazy -where's the photo of hubby's wellies?
I guess even with zoom lens you couldn't get near enough?
Maybe fix the camera to a loofah.........

PS Need more likes on the Cow Watering Lane photo before the alleged training HQ can be revealed. It's a dilly :o)

Aye been keeping my head down secret training just in case dont meet entry requirements. That official handbook getting increasingly complex.
So much so that I m beginning to develop one.

Sorry missed Lindak .Dont mind the Toby reference on GW but Claudia Winkleman? never get away with that my legs not good enough.

BB ~
This multi-tasking giving you a complex.
Too many TV shows.
Just stick to being Bonkers on our favourite one ~
Strictly Come Gardening.

Think I may need to keep track of the bonkers virus I seem to have unwittingly released.Perhaps a blog where goy members could record where they ve spotted it ?

24 Sep, 2008

 

Bonker's Virus ~
that needs to be a Bonker's blog.
Go for it.
Maybe incorporate our medication in the title for extra flavour.

I am begining to think some people out there have been partaking of a herb i used to grow in the sixties.

26 Sep, 2008

 

Philip ~
Gardening from your pram were you?
How do you remember the sixties?

Any chance of growing some legal herbs to give extra energy to the GoY Wellie Olympians? With Flcrazy as our special team Health Consultant, she would know exactly the right doses to administer to her athletes.

A bit of a blurr but i was there
