I should have thought ahead and told my neighbors to come over and pick anything ripe. But honestly, I figured that it might not rain while I was gone and I didn't want to bother anyone with having to water for me. Since my irrigation system needs work, I also didn't want anyone coming over to find dead plants in my garden.
But, thank the LORD, it must have rained while I was gone ....
the okra didn't know it was supposed to take a vacation !
Unfortunately, I haven't figured out what to do
with foot long okra!
