Summer's First Harvest . . .

Our 'Victory Garden 2009'
is growing & thriving.

We picked our first okra harvest on Saturday.
Count 'em, 8 okra spears!
Just enough to fry up for a yummy side
dish for tonight's supper.

Congrats! Beautiful okra--great job!! Yum- do you roll the sliced okra in an egg wash, then a cornmeal and flour dusting then fry? mmmmmmm

Good summer eating!

I like your new header picture. Where is that from?

What a bumper crop! No really I think it is great that you guys put a garden in this summer. You have always loved your gardens in the past. Keep up the weed picking.
the Okra will be delicious!

Yummy! My favorite. Well, I say that about all the great veggies. We've had new potatoes, squash, onions, beets & one little cucumber.....but no okra yet.
I can't wait for okra and tomatoes!
Your okra made me so hungry for it. I know it was good!

Love you,

GM Carol. I just wanted to thank you for dropping by and leaving your comment...I can't wait for you to post more of your home grown veggies. More of us should be doing that.

Happy Gardening,
