Now that the weather has cooled somewhat, our small okra patch has slowed (but is still putting out new leaf growth). I'm popping okra still everyday but they are baby okra for gumbo.

I left 5 seed pods on the plants to use as next years seed. They haven't withered and dried yet.

Any way to speed the drying/seed harvesting process? They are 6~7 inches long and firm. I don't want them to rot on the plant or rot if I cut them.

Any ideas fellow gardeners?

Just scoop the seeds out and leave them on a paper plate or something similar to air dry for a week or so. Okra seeds don't stay viable all that long though. They should be good for next season but maybe not the one after that.
