I am glad to hear it Orange. By it starting this late, you should have tender pods until Christmas Day!!

Mine should be about two feet deep in water by Sunday. The first outer band of rain from hurricane Harvey is here now and it is pouring down. Hopefully you guys east of here won't get two feet of rain.

I want to wish you and your family the best.  We're expecting 15 inches of rain here in Orange.  In fact, I went out and took a pic of the garden just in case it floats away before Harvey moves on.  And God Bless all who are in the direct line of the storm.

All those important "firsts" in life: your first best friend; your first date; your first marriage (let's hope there's only one); your first child; your first okra pod of the season. Okay - admittedly there's a pretty big drop-off between the last two, but the the okra pod is still in the top ten 😉 And, yes, I ate the pod shortly after taking the pic. Even raw, they're pretty tasty. Yep - the okra is finally producing.

The picture didnt work

The Forum went down a couple of weeks ago, and any pics downloaded directly to the forum (as opposed to linked to the Forum) prior to that, don't show up anymore.  Unfortunately, my okra pic's are part of that group.
