Getting my stitch on!

This hasn't been the best growing season due to the horrible heat wave that we've been enduring, but thank goodness for small waterable gardens! 

My first year to grow sunflowers in the garden.  The seeds were so pretty!  I saved plenty for a full row of them next year.


The cucumbers are going crazy this year.  Last year, was horrible and I didn't get any.


We love okra in Arkansas.  I plan to pickle a batch or three.


Planted the tomatoes a little late.  They're still green. 


And these are my egg plants!  hehe.


They grow these.  Grin

Sooooo jealous! I have planted my first real garden this year and am waiting in agony for everything to grow! I live in Minnesota, so out season is shorter and the weather has been pretty brutal -- torrential rains or scorching heat. Sure hope my sunflowers bloom as prettily as yours have! Still waiting on the cucs, and tomatoes.... Thanks for sharing your pics!

Egg plant... HA!

How many okra plants do you have?  I love to roast okra (& who doesn't love it fried?!)  Great entry!

I only have five okra plants this year.  I had six but one just mysteriously croaked.  It was the strangest thing!  I went out one day and it was just dead!  I've never tried it roasted.  I'll definately have to look that up.

I just slice it up into bite sized pieces, toss with olive oil, salt & pepper, (maybe garlic or some other seasoning), then bake/roast at 350 until it looks done.

Does it get slimy when you roast it this way?

Nope, not really.  I mean, okra is kind of slimy, but it's less slimy for me this way.

I just had to jump in to say that I made the roasted okra for my family this week and it was a HIT!  Everyone loved it so much that now I'm out there baby talking my okra plants to grow grow grow!
