We planted s bunch of okra, from seeds from a friend of my Mom’s in OK. There are about 25 plants that have come up and have taken off. Our first year of getting a crop.
I picked about a dozen yesterday, and last night my wife fried them along with a few pickle slices (also from the garden). That was a side dish to some stuffed home grown bell peppers with ground turkey, rice, and tomato sauce. In addition to that we had some fresh Honey Select corn our neighbor gave us. Very good supper.
What variety of okra do you have? We planted some purple type. It actually doesn’t taste that bad raw. We are going to try to pickle some when it starts to produce more. It grows very well back home, and we ate lots of it, mostly fried or pickled.
