My name is Charles Burmiester.

I never liked eating Okra till I was in  College. Here's my story.

As a kid growing up with family that loved to garden, there was always plenty of
Okra. And truthfully as a kid and even on into high school. Okra was not for me.

Then when I got to college my room mate was Okra crazy.  He loved Okra. He
could cook Okra  a million different ways. The funny part of this story is  that he
was a chef going to college to be a dietitian . And the only thing he cooked was

With classes and sports and a busy schedule I had no time to cook. So I would just
grab some Okra  as I ran out the door.

Before I knew it. Okra became a morning , noon and night meal. Okra was fried,
steamed,  boiled, baked and  breaded. After Thanksgiving break he came back to
college with pickled Okra that he made himself. Oh no!! more Okra.

I married his sister and now  I have a family and a garden too. And guess what I
have growing? That 's right Okra. My wife is an avid gardener of many Okra plants
and Okra is a main staple of our diet on a weekly basis.

What Is Okra ?
Okra  is a vegetable. The plant will grow about 4 feet tall. Sometimes a little
shorter. Okra likes full sun and moderate watering. Just about any kind of soil will
work. But a sandy loam soil will give the best production of Okra at harvest time.

The Okra plant do not make heavy foliage. It does make nice big leaves and
gorgeous yellow flowers. Right behind the flowers you will find the Okra pods.
How To Plant  Okra ?
Okra is easy to plant and grow.

1. First prepare your soil. Add some old compost a little peat moss and a fertilizer.

2. Now make a hole about 2 times the size of the roots on the Okra plant.
Throw a little bone meal in the bottom of the hole.

3. Now find the soil mark in the truck of the Okra plant.

4. Place the plant into the prepared soil. And fill back in the soil.

5. Pat down the soil to get the air pockets out.

6. Now water and drench the soil well.

7. No staking needed. They stand on their own.
Plant Okra about 1 foot a part. And about 3 feet between the rows. They make
great decorative plants in a large container.  Okra seam to grow in spurts.  Slow
at first. Then after it blooms the pods appear shortly there after. Feed and side

Harvest pods when they are young and tender. The older the podsthe tougher
the pods.   Okra will continue to produce as long as you keep harvesting the

dry out faster that if planted in your garden. So be sure to check on the soil and
keep it slightly moist.
