Hello all,

I harvested some okra yesterday after finally figuring out what mysterious plant it was. I had no idea okra can get so large...and to think, I was waiting all this time for them to bloom.:p

Most interesting veggie I've ever grown. My first time growing; Mine didn't start producing till about 3 ft. Planted more in June that really took off, produced like mad, really bushed out and now of course are slowing down -- hope I get lots more before frost.

I found out that blanching is not necessary for freezing. Just pickled 2 pints today and will need to wait to see how they came out. Even though we don't eat lots of Okra, I'll grow it just for the interesting plant.
