Okra Ambitions


21 July 2010

Hey, look — the okra is growing…

Just because I’d mentioned it as an ambition of mine — to grow okra — in a recent (self)interview I did at The Nervous Breakdown.  People say okra is difficult to grow in the north, generally grown in the south.  I’m happy to report that it is not impossible to grow okra in the northeast…

It’s too hot for gumbo, so we’ll pickle them.  Yum.

    Wow, I’m impressed! And a little jealous. We tried growing okra one year and it failed miserably… and as of this writing the two tomatoes we had going have just been eaten by something. I was beginning to think I have some kind of black thumb, but you give me hope. And lord knows if I could grow okra I’d gain some major points with the resident Texan.
