Growing Okra Or Ladies Fingers In My Garden.

Previously, I have grown the long okra or ladies fingers plants. If you are interested, you can click here to see the length of long okra or ladies fingers. After that, I wanted to try to grow the shorter version of okra, which is the common type sold in the market.
#1
 I re-potted the seedling into a pot.
#2
 10 days later
#3
same as #2
#4
 2 weeks later
#5 - same as above.
Flower buds have appeared.
#6
 20 days later

#7 - same as above
The okras or ladies fingers are shorter but the plant produced more.
#8 - same as above
#9
2 more plants growing in another pot. 
 #10
The harvest from 2 to 3 plants is enough for 2 people. The okra or ladies fingers can be cooked in many ways, e.g. curries, steamed, stir fries, etc.
For this meal, I used the okra to cook a spicy dish (mixed with Indian bitter gourds, minced meat or dried prawns, chilies, & prawn paste). Both the okras and Indian bitter gourds were home grown.
 Steamed pork with preserved salted vegetables (tai tau choy)
Just these two is enough for 2 people.

Are there still some among you who hold that

"only believing" is enough? Believing in one God?

Well, remember that the demons believe this too -

so strongly that they tremble in terror!

(James 2:19, The Living Bible-TLB)

  1. Well done for adding okra to your list of home grown vegetables! I like to eat okra just steamed on its own. Very sweet especially those that are home grown organically.
