Notes from the garden
You don't have to put oil on them. Just put them in a hot skillet with a little salt sprinkle.Mom
well, the next time you slap them on the grill i'm coming over! yum!! does the slime get cooked out? ew, i don't like the slime...
I am afraid I must admit I did that all summer. I'd turn around and have 8 inch long Okra. Never did eat them. But I sure enjoyed growing them. And I gave some small ones away. Then they left with the tomatoes and the leaf-footed bugs.
I've only had fried okra -- one of these days I need to try it grilled or sauteed.
Bonnie, I have Santa ornaments made from okra that was too big too eat! Don't ask me how the craft person created them, but they are wonderful!Grilled okra sounds delicious.gail
I wonder if they turn into something like luffas if they get too big! Never have grown okra and very rarely have I eaten it.
I am happy to hear someone was able to grow Okra in Austin. I started okra from seeds in mid-late July, then transplanted them to my raised garden. I am now seeing signs of life that I may have okra in two weeks. Is this normal? This is my first time growing okra and I was not sure what to expect. Thank you.
Anonymous, regarding your question about okra. I just plant the seeds directly into my garden. Timing seems right, in fact a bit on the later end of the planting range (May- July) for seeds into the garden, but I know I was getting okra in late July as I probably planted mine in June. With the cooler weather, my production has slowed but I am still getting okra pods steadily. Try direct seeding next year in June.
