...in the garden.

We expected the okra to be done by now, but the last week of September gave us summertime tempratures, and we're still getting blooms. If the weather holds, we'll see another batch of pods over the coming week.

Sowed another row of Portugese kale last week. This makes those wonderful veined leaves used to wrap "green beetle" sandwiches, essentially beet burger and hummus in a kale leaf wrap. We'll put in another row next week.  They will be giving us round, flat, dinner-plate sized leaves by frost, tender enough for salad and firm enough for slaw. Delicious cooked, too. The frost will just sweeten them.
