    I thought they were some weird plant harvested from the sea... We definitely will try to grow some.

    But Can they survive the Canadian winter?

    I’m intrigued, I too thought they were some type of sea sponge. I use them sliced as a soap holder/dryer in the soap dish. When I need to scrub my hands it’s there ready to go. Edible you say? I’ll have to plant some when I get a support frame set up. I’m pretty jealous of Marc’s gourd tunnel and would like to build one of my own. I need to sort out a site for it first.
