Okra flower bud
I haven’t tried to grow okra before, just picked up the seeds on a whim this spring.

To the beginnings of an okra flower, these are busy days in the little balcony garden.

Things change in a matter of hours: tomatoes ripen, peppers swell, the occasional morning glory shows itself, mint tries to creep in every other pot it can find, kale leaves disappear into the mouths of voracious cabbage butterfly caterpillars.

Some changes are better than others but they are all interesting to watch.

    1. Thanks, Damyanti! This is my first time growing them and they seem to be doing well. How do you like to eat okra? I’ve had it breaded and fried, in soups, and stir-fried, but I don’t know much else to do with it.

I'd love to hear your thoughts
