Garden 2009: Okra and Sweet Potatoes



Our okra is a little slow in starting to produce this year. We've only harvested a few pods thus far. Okra is a southern crop that always seems to thrive in the heat of summer. I wonder if this summer has been too mild and pleasant for it to do well?




The sweet potato vines have filled their enclosure. I hope they are making lots of sweet potatoes underground. Our rabbits do a good job of keeping the vines pruned so they done sprawl all over the garden -- whether we really want them to prune or not.

What gorgeous raised beds! By the by, mom and dad are reporting the very best tomato season they've ever seen. Cucumbers too. Wish I could say the same, but, alas, our season has been awful - even for the farmer's market farmers, and that makes me feel a WHOLE lot better!

We got a very late start and are only growing an abbreviated garden this year. Everything is doing well except for the peppers which are barely staying alive.
