I bought okra plants on a whim this year. Once I got them home, I realized I was completely clueless about how they grew. Fast forward to harvest time and here I am again, clueless. My husband and I have been discussing when to pick them and we decided to wait and let them get big. Bad idea. Apparently after they grow past 4″or so they begin to get tough.
I went to make my grandparents some baked okra and most of the ones I had picked were too tough to do anything with. Sad. Anyway, I decided to save the seed out of them for next year. I bought the plants from Wal-Mart. Do you think the seeds will produce? I guess we shall see. Gardening is just one big science experiment too me. 🙂
What lessons have you learned in the garden?
