Cucumbers and Okra


Boston Pickling Cucumber

Boston Pickling Cucumber

I’m trying a second planting of Cucumbers, as the plants that went in from seed this spring have stopped growing, and the vines are dying. I have way too many cucumbers at this point, but soon, they will either be pickled, eaten or they will wither away.  In the past I’ve mainly tried to extend the season by starting early, but this year I am trying to build on my skills by pressing the boundaries of fall. I’m hoping the plants will grow cucumbers up until the fall frost takes them away.

Okra

Okra

Here is an Okra plant, complete with the potential for three vegetables. I have learned that Okra originated from Africa, and is grown in three major areas: South Asia, Central Africa, and to a lesser extent, Europe. I was a bit disappointed to find out that Okra cooks into a slimy texture, but I’m still eager to try it out. Here’s some more information for those interested.
