We have about 4 okra plants in our raised bed garden. They were planted late, but have gotten huge. My hubby picks them about once a week and I freeze a very small bag of them. These will be used in vegetable soup this winter.
I really enjoy putting up bits and pieces of things to be used when the weather gets colder.
The okra blossoms are beautiful and look a lot like hibiscus and cotton, since they are related to each other.
Its good that we don't have too many okra, because you don't need too many in a pot of soup anyway. If we were getting large harvests, I would be too tempted to make lots of fried okra and we are trying to eat more healthy. We LOVE fried okra!
