My Okra is Finally Blooming
What a beautiful flower this plant has. Don’t know if there is enough time to get any okra off it, though. I’ve never grown okra before. With this heat, things will get growing. Most of my tomatoes are getting “poached” as green ones, so I doubt I’ll get too many red ones. The ones that are turning red are very likely to be blighted. The onions are doing well. Some of them disappear, but the damage hasn’t been too bad. I planted scallions and some did well, but some hardly grew at all. I’m not sure exactly what the deal is. I planted the same seeds in the side yard and they grew beautifully. I wonder if it has anything to do with sharing a box with tomatoes. They get a full day of sun and the same amount of water (or more) as the big ones in the yard. Do they prefer some shade? I wouldn’t think so, but the ones in the yard get some morning shade. Next year – no onions sharing with tomatoes and we’ll see what happens.
