  1. Fried is what most everyone does down this way, Me, I like it anyway you fix it

    When We Fry it, I usually blanch it for about 4 min then in ice water. Dry it, cut it into small bite

    size pieces and toss it in Corn Meal Mix. We fry it using a little olive oil till golden brown.

    I like it with Onions and Tomatoes 

    I start out with about a tablespoon of bacon grease in a skillet, Saute the onions (I slice them into not too thick rings and cut them in half) Then I dump in the okra stir it around a but then dump in a jar of my wife's canned tomatoes, a little seasoning (I use Tony's)

    let iy cook till everything is tender and YUM.

    We also grill em, Take them whole toss in olive oil sprinkle with favorite seasoning the toss on the grill, turn frequently JUst cook a bit , taste one and see it it needs more, again YUM

    Great in Gumbo, soups, stews

    Whats going on in Gary's Garden?
  4. Hey Buddy, I cut my Okra down (Tired of it) Turnips and greens are going like gangbusters, Bush beans and sugar snap peas coming along nicely. I had a couple of heads of garlic in the pantry so I broke them apart and planted them. Lettuce and carrots are starting to show. and just for fun (Texas A&M said you could) plant potatoes in the fall. Had about half a bag of red potatoes, cut them up let them dry for a couple of days and planted them. Most of the eyes were not what I wanted but oh well I have two plants that made and full of blooms right now I' take a pic and post it.
    Still fighting weeds and grass.

    Try a "No Till" garden, you keep bringing the seeds to the surface, or plant a cover crop?
    Keep us posted I'm curious about the taters.
