We went out and we bought plants in a shop in Lagankhel. There were luffa gourd, long gourd, pumpkin plants and seeds.
We planted the luffa gourd ourselves. First the plant was small. Today it is tall. There were caterpillars on the luffa gourd leaves.
We collected the caterpillars and we put the caterpillars in the big bowl because they turn into cocoons and tiny insects came out of the cocoons [these were wasps that had already laid their eggs in the caterpillars].
Anita didi saw a luffa gourd today. Everybody saw many luffa gourds. She picked luffa gourds. I couldn’t pick the luffa gourd because we are small and the plant was big. Sanket dada also picked luffa gourds.
That was fun and we took photos. We held the luffa gourd and took photos.
Everybody was smiling and I was also smiling. We are eating the luffa gourd for supper. Sabita didi will cook the luffa gourd.
Nicola and Phoebe and their friend came to our house on Friday evening. Everybody ate luffa gourd and rice and chicken also. Everybody liked the luffa gourd.
We also made artwork of the luffa gourd. We did the artwork for science. We made artwork of luffa gourd, luffa gourd flowers and leaves. A leaf was torn and there were holes in the leaf because the caterpillars had eaten the leaf.
