This year I planted okra in my part-shade garden. I only sowed about six seeds, and it seemed to take a long time before the plants started growing, but once they started, they grew very tall and produced a good amount of okra. In fact, I have okra right now in the garden! I was looking for ways to cook okra, and James Townsend & Sons came to mind – so, here's one of their videos with a historic recipe from Michael Twitty. It's a recipe I’d like to try. I have some of the ingredients right in my very own garden, such as herbs, tomatoes, and okra! It also calls for garlic, which I don't have in the garden but reminds me that I should plant some soon since fall is right around the corner (that will be another garden post). The broth seems interesting using a whole onion with cloves. Just hearing that makes me want to try the recipe! This video gives a little okra history and a really delicious sounding soup recipe ~ just in time for the fall weather. It’s my kind of cooking…throw this in…throw that in…and it comes out just the way you want it.
