One of my favourite curries is okra with tomato and onions. In other words, I’ve been keen to grow okra so that I can have it organic, especially as I haven’t found a source through any shops.
The first year I tried to grow my own, I was amazed by the beautiful, yellow flowers. (Unfortunately, I didn’t get a photo of the ones on the current plant.) However, it was inside and I managed about one fruit a week.
I don’t think I’m going to have a more significant crop this summer but I thought I may as well see how the plant might fare outside.
To be sure, these fruit will certainly be fresh when they are ready but I think it is a tad cold outdoors. The plant certainly hasn’t grown any of late. Having said that, the seeds were old, so perhaps I will try again next year with fresh seed.
And I will still have a curry this year, albeit mostly with other vegetables!
