Growing a Bit of the "South"

We've been able to bring a bit of the "South" to our garden. We have four okra plants that have been giving us okra all summer long. It became a favorite southern vegetable while we were living in Georgia, and are happy that we've been able to keep it with us by growing some here in Philadelphia. Next year I'll try for at least five plants, maybe six, and we may not even need to buy any okra at all, which we've come close to with the four plants we have now. Our daughter says that okra is her favorite vegetable, and is so excited that we are growing it in our garden. Julia was able to make a great Okra Tempura dish all from the okra from the garden, as well as rice flour that she milled herself.
