These 7 okra (Clemson spineless)(AKA lady’s fingers, bhindi or gumbo) plants were purchased in flats and put into individual pots in the greenhouse for about two weeks to strengthen the root structure. Okra requires warm temperatures and in my area June meets this condition.The okra was planted without disturbing the roots,then the row was heavily mulched with wood chips, as is all the garden.The area selected is along the board containing the garlic, and gives some extra heat, which okra thrives on. Okra seeds can be directly sown with good results if weather conditions are adequate in my zone 5.I use the pods, with most of my juice preservatives, which are very tender if picked about four inches in length.
