Growing up, the only times I remember eating okra was in a macaroni and tomato dish my mom would make (I didn't really care for it at the time) or when we would go to the Catfish House. I never imagined that I'd be eating it raw in the garden one day! I had no idea what a beautiful flower the plant would put on before its fruit, and it never crossed my mind what went into harvesting. I wonder what our crew workers think about it after this week? 🤔☺️

Thursday's are good days. We can't believe we're almost through the first week with our July crew workers😳 Time flies when you're having fun and working hard, I guess. ☺️

Nature's candy- sweet and sour. Don't get too excited yet. These were just planted this spring, so there's enough for us to snack on for now.
