I have mostly houseplants and cacti. I'm a beginner doing constant research, trying not to kill anything. USDA zones 8a and 8b.

Grown From Seed: Look at my okra, guys! This is the best lame picture I could get because all the okra plants are taller than me now. They've been producing for months now. #grown-from-seed #gyo #okra #tallplants

Nice! These won't even grow in my shady yard. #pentagonal

@emch We had a few growing right up against that tall fence, and they didn't make it for the shade. ☠

☹ But it sounds as if some of them do OK for you. Do you use them for fried pentagons or jambalaya or what?

We cut them into pentagons, cover them with olive oil and a few spices, and bake them until crispy. @emch

Forgot about the okra and let it get a little too big this time. 😅 The texture seems to be off whenever they get too big. We'll see! 🤞 #okra #gyo #grownfromseed

My okra sprouts have 3 leaves now, and most are working on #4. ☺️👍 We had tornadoes🌪 come close today, but my area was lucky. 🌬 Lots of wind and a little rain💧is all we got. #okra #sprouts #newgrowth #newleaf #gyo #grownfromseed

Funny story: fried okra kept me alive from ages 1-4. It was the only solid food they could get me to eat after I was weaned, so my babysitter made it every day. @cyndi
