Applestar, I've found Clemson Spineless in Home Depot and Lowe's.applestar wrote:Arrggh!! I thought I ordered Clemson Spineless seeds too, but it seems I only ordered the Alabama Red!!

Well, I guess they'll look pretty like marlingardener said....
Did that Deb. She made out like a bandit on her birthday. Her son got her a beautiful music box with a modern twist. It has two knobs, 1 marked A-J and the other 1-10. There is a song book that tells you what letter and number pulls up that particular song and it plays 100 different songs.DeborahL wrote:Gumbo, please give that neat lady a hug from California !
I like gumbo but I don't have a good recipe.
Okra likes it hot and is drought tolerant. I will put mine in the ground in a few weeks when it gets a bit warmer since it is a heavy producer. Matter of fact, it is still producing each year when I decide to pull it to put in my fall/winter garden. By then, I've got enough to last me and a few others all year long till the next planting.sheeshshe wrote:what is the secret to growing Okra anyways? I tried it twice and it wouldn't grow larger than 6 inches I just ordered a different variety in hope that it is better for my climate. I got cow horn Okra.
Okra, when growing in my garden often reaches between 6 and 8 ft. tall by seasons end. Why yours only grew to 20 inches is beyond me. Right now, my plants are about 18 inches tall, have leaves at least 8-10 inches at their widest and already putting out pods of okra. I'd say your second experience is more normal and what I'm use to seeing when growing okra. By the way, the variety I plant is Clemson Spineless. I've never planted okra in a pot since their roots are pretty extensive.HotPepperManFL wrote:Question? This is only the second time I've grown okra. The first time it was from seed in the ground, this time I'm growing in pots. When I was growing them inground they grew to about 20" or so with smaller leaves an didn't put out alot of okra. This time they are at about 12" right now and have huge leaves. They are 9" across at the broadest point. They are both from the same seed stock. Which is more normal?
