Loofah!

Already posted this on Facebook but thought I'd highlight it here, as well.  Looking forward to seeing if this plant actually gets big enough to harvest for a new loofah sponge.  Haven't used loofahs since I was a kid and Farmer John at Ward's puts loofah plants up for sale each summer.  The first small loofah fell off before it could mature (not sure what happened); even if none of the plants end up producing anything, they still have beautiful, green, vining foliage and pretty yellow blossoms.  And, yes, as one commenter on FB asked, they are a type of squash.
