Okra? Orca? Who cares... It's good stuff!

This is my first attempt at growing okra. I started from seed very early in the season, probably February or March. For the longest time the plants were just spindling looking things. Late in the summer, when things really got HOT, the plants took off like crazy, and just a few weeks ago started producing okra, yum yum!

Darling daughter continuosly calls these Orca. I don't care what she calls them as long as they are on their way to our tummies. Our favorite way to eat okra?????? well fried of course, what could be tastier than that!
Lessons learned.... grow more plants next year so that I can freeze some okra, and make sure the plants are in a sunnier location.
