Bountiful and Bountifail (Garden) Part 6

O

Okra. Burgundy okra (pictured above), Dwarf Green okra, and Cowhorn okra.  My favorite is the burgundy. They are just so pretty.  They stay that color until you cook them, and then they turn green. If you were going to plant a second vegetable plant, I’d tell you okra.  This stuff grows extremely well in the summer.  I only planted my okra mid June, and it’s producing already! However, they only produce a few at a time. Last year I didn’t know what to do with just 3 okra at a time.  But I learned (again), the freezer is my friend!  I just pick them and pop them into the designated okra bag in the freezer until I have enough to do something.  My plans last year was to pickle them. We LUV pickled okra.  But I never got around to it.  So maybe this year.

Okra = always bountiful

  1. Another idea for okra: toss whole pods with olive oil, cumin and sea salt. Skewer and grill until just charred. Serve with lemon wedges. Yum :) Loving your garden posts!!
