When you forget to harvest your okra…

August 18, 2009

nature takes care of things for you! So if you happen to be less than aggressive about getting your okra harvested on time, you'll find that the pods will dry on the plant and drop to the ground. There the seeds will germinate giving you your next fall crop of okra plants. Convenient eh? Now is the time to plant either new okra transplants, or start them from seed for fall harvest. I just do mine the lazy way!
