I LOVE okra. It gets gooey if you cook it with moisture (although I like it even then), but it's GREAT sautéed.
It's usually expensive, so it's worth growing yourself. It doesn't produce that many pods (maybe I'm growing it wrong?), but the plants themselves are big and ornamental.
Peasant (1963-1972) and Fluffy (1970s?-1982- I think of you as 'Ambrose' now)- Your spirits outshone some humans I have known. Be happy forever.
