I decided today would be a great day to put in the okra seeds. It is sunny, warm, and the ground is still fairly damp from the previous few days of heavy rainfall. I put in 64 seeds and did so between my onion and beets in the row. By the time the okra is big enough to start shading things, the beets and onions will be ready to pull.
Gotta utilize the space available and companion planting is a great way to do it. My raised bed has 6 tomato plants that are really taking off, with lots of buds, vigorous growth and offering a good bit of shade for my 30 or so leaf lettuce plants growing beneath them. I harvested a large bag of lettuce last week and can do more later today. I must use it before it gets too hot and the lettuce starts to bolt.
