Fat Stubby Okra (Lady's Finger) - Harvesting The First Fruit.

I have planted normal green okra, long green okra, and red okra. Okra is also know as lady's fingers. One evening a friend passed me some okra seeds and she told me that this is the very short stubby okra specie. And she also gave me 2 short stubby okras to try. Definitely, I am interested and excited to grow this okra in my garden!
This is the short stubby okra flower and below it, you can see a tiny okra.
Can you also see some tiny white specks on the stems and leaves? These are the pests and to keep the bugs from destroying my plants, I washed the bugs off the plants with water on alternate mornings.
The first fruit of the short stubby okra. 
The 1 inch short stubby okra and more buds above it.
One morning, I harvested 3 long angled luffas and 1 short stubby okra from my garden.
Short stubby okra - the first fruit from my garden.
It is about 3.75 inch in length and about 1.5 inch in diameter.
Since I was cooking sambal stinky beans with prawns, I added the one and only short stubby okra to the dish. Taste wise, it is more crunchy than the other okra species. Waiting for more short stubby okras to harvest.
I also used the angled luffa to cook this simple dish.
Just garlic, luffa and egg.
The dancing ladies orchid is blooming again. As the breeze blew and moved these yellow flowers, they looked are dancing ladies.


Praise him with the trumpet and with lute and harp.

Praise him with the drums and dancing.

Praise him with stringed instruments and horns.

Praise him with the cymbals, yes, lour clanging cycmbals.

Let everything alive give praises to the Lord! You praise him!

Hallelujah!

(Psalm 150:3-6, The Living Bible-TLB)

  5. I've grown okra before, but it never really came out looking that nice.
    Anything with prawns is my weakness.

  12. We have okra in our garden at the ranch. I go out and cut some every morning. Sherry and I pickled 8 jars of it using a brine and garlic cloves pluss hot peppers. Haven't tasted it yet but I hope it's good. It smelled good! Louis Dean likes fried okra....sesoned and rolled in cornmeal and fried in hot oil. My favorite.

  18. We only get the short okra here, i think. At least, i've never seen such long ones as you can grow at the stores here. They are good, though, aren't they.

  23. We used to raise okra when I was a kid, and I have had it in my garden here, just not as much when I was a kid. My mom and I had a big patch that we picked and sold. I thing the plants and blooms make a beautiful part of a flower bed.

    Love those flowers at the end of your post.
