With these, I will dry the gourds to use as luffa scrubs and save the seeds for growing next year.
The Luffa gourds are an addition to my Fall/Halloween scene/setting with a homemade scarecrow that holds a sign saying "Happy Harvest" over an arrangement of Chrysanthemums and Aster flowers, pumpkins I grew, and some pumpkins I bought, and the cushaws that were donated to us.
Here is an updated version of the Fall/Halloween setting in the picture below. I added some of the butternut and yellow squash that grew.
Also I have a video explaining the growing process of the Luffa gourds, below:
