These are some of the 'new' things I'm trying this year.

Dragon's Tongue bean. Mine don't look very appetizing, white when cooked, but they're very tasty!

Two varieties of okra: Clemson Spineless and Star of David. The Star of David is a surprise. It's fat! Both taste good.

These varieties came from Seed Savers Exchange.

I bet they are going to be delicious?

They're very tasty. Surprisingly so.

@AstralSmoke I like beans and the only way I'll eat okra is fried. Have you ever tried a pickled okra they're pretty good too.

@Sheannutt No, I have to admit I'm not a big fan of pickled veggies. I have heard of it and I should try it.

I agree with you on the okra, if eaten alone it needs to be fried.

@Sheannutt Okra is one of those plants that is extremely easy to grow. You get fresh okra everyday and if you don't like it that often, other people might like some, making yourself an instant new neighbor. The stalk is very fibrous and I use it in making handmade paper. It's almost a perfect plant.

@AstralSmoke it is a beautiful plant, we used to grow it and yeah you get a lot of it when it starts the producing.


I like okra but in soup or deep fried. Those Dragon's Tongue beans are pretty. I like anything with 'dragon' in it's name.

Never cared for okra...slimy inside...

MissKathleen Level 9 Aug 4, 2018

I prefer mine fried. Not slimy!

@AstralSmoke you can have my share.

@MissKathleen Some people like it, some people don't. We've never had a shortage of okra.
