I'm a grower, not a cooker. lol. So Im sorry if I don't post food pics. But thought I would today.

I roasted the Okra and wasn't a fan.
I tried a different way today and it's MUCH better. Very different!

First I learned to pick them small!

I sliced tomatoes and onions.
Cut the Okra into little wheels.
Put olive oil in a pot. Put onions in first for couple minutes until brown. Added tomatoes, Okra, salt. Cook for 40 minutes.

Crazy aftertaste but not bad. I did use it as a Pasta sauce. I couldn't eat it alone.



Love the fact that my lunch came from the garden, except the Pasta.

Okra is delicious. I love it stewed with tomatoes and onions and served over a bowl of hot and sticky white rice. They're great fried too. Cut them the same, in little wheels.

Default Fall garden

Planted seeds for beets, Pok choy, and radish today. Hope the timing works out. I put my screen "tent" over them to protect them from bugs and critters.

Nice..You reminded me. A neighbor is throwing out some windows. I should pick them up and do what you did. Good luck on the fall crop. No more warmups for us here (70s mostly) plus I can never get into Fall gardening. I want winter so bad
