Tomatoes are at the point we're getting more than we can eat, but neighbors and co-workers appreciate it. Still getting cucumbers, jalapenos, green onions and the yellow bells are starting to color. Squash & giant Marconi's are played out. Thinking of going with okra next year instead of green onions.

Does Okra do well up your way, Down here is ideal  Lots of Heat and water

I have no idea. It would have done well this year, for sure! Who knows about next year. I've never known anyone to grow it around here.

Okra Loves Heat  the hotter the better. Just keep it watered and it grows and produces like crazy

We have been eating Okra 2 - 3 times a week and keeping the neighbors and friends stocked up.

Everything is done here but peppers. I still have a lot of Jalapenos and a few Bells and Chili's, but it's supposed to get into the low 40s at night in a couple days so they'll get pulled. It's been a decent year. Lots of Tomatoes. 😊
