#hillcountryredokra from #trueloveseeds @seedkeeping nice firm hollow-like pods...firm, yet tender. They hold a beautiful shape. I can hardly wait to make something really purdy with these... but they got a slow start in my garden. Im getting about 1 harvest per week now.
Okra is another summer vegetable that loves our heat. This Hill Country Red variety gives fat pods that are still tender until at least 3.5 inches in length. We have been grilling them halved lengthwise, brushed with olive oil, and simply salted. They actually have a slightly sweet flavor and are just pleasantly mucilaginous. Cooking at high heat cuts down on its gooey-ness. They are also great roasted whole or sliced crosswise, coated in cornmeal, and fried. I already have plans for them to make an appearance in my annual after-Thanksgiving turkey gumbo.  #hillcountryredokra #gumbo #growyourownfood #youngfarmers #growinggardeners #gardenersofinstagram
#okra ! I’m amazed by the success.
I’ve eaten okra only a handful of times. I bought some @bakercreekseeds in a motivated mood on the last day of May when I felt like planting something and it was one of very few options for #zone9a  It’s growing to beat the band, as my Dad would say.
The fun of raising your own chickens and growing your own food. You get colors and varieties you can’t find at the supermarket. That plus you know what goes into it and from where it comes. 💛  #growyourownfood

Hill Country Red Okra hanging on til the very end! It's probably 10 feet tall, and still producing ripe, dry seed pods. This particular variety of the West African crop originated in the eastern portion of the mostly limestone Edwards Plateau in west-central Texas - also known as Texas Hill Country, and it is my partner Chris's favorite. #hillcountryredokra #heirloomokra #abelmoschusesculentus #seedkeeping

Many hands shelled beans, cracked open okra, pulled out pepper seeds, and threshed amaranth at the @sankofacommunityfarm Harvest Festival yesterday. An ancient past-time rediscovered in the heart of Southwest Philadelphia. And the best part - my mom and sister drove down five hours just in time to help me out (last photo)! #seedkeeping #seedsaving #petitmarseillaispeppers #potawatomipolelima #hillcountryredokra #goldenredamaranth #harvestfestival #harvestfest #sankofafarmatbartramsgarden
旧暦8月5日 (24th Sep 2017) 古いお屋敷の長屋門の軒下にて、固定種・自然農の野菜や、手づみ手もみ紅茶を販売させて頂いてきました! 野菜は袋に詰めず、皆さんの必要な量だけ方式です。試行錯誤しながらですが、今後ともどうぞよろしくお願い致します! ありがとうございました! #かえるとこ #オーガニックマーケット #organicmarket #鈴木邸 #いきものちきゅう #naturalfarming #自然農 #blacktea #紅茶 #紅富貴 #hillcountryredokra #burgundyokra #島オクラ #rodelikacarrot #ラブリーキャロット #中生三河島枝豆 #だだちゃ豆庄内3号 #固定種 #openpollinated
旧暦6月28日 (19th Aug 2017) 紅茶作りや商品の準備をしている間に田んぼや畑の草がどんどん伸びています. お米も大きくなっています. 良く育っているものは気付けば30本ぐらいまで分げつしています. 何ともたくましい‼ 隙をついては畔にトウモロコシやキュウリを定植したりもしていまいした.  太っちょのオクラ、ヒルカントリーレッドをちょこちょこ収穫しています. ネバネバを通り越してネチョネチョニチャニチャする、個人的には新食感のオクラです. #いきものちきゅうの田んぼ  #openpollinated #okra #hillcountryred #rice #paddy #paddyfield #ヒルカントリーレッド #固定種 #自然農
旧暦8月2日 (21st Sep 2017) その1 太っちょオクラ、ヒルカントリーレッドの種取り用です。まだ水分があるのですが、亀裂から種が見えていて、これから雨になりそうですし取ってしまいました。早いでしょうかね... #いきものちきゅうの田んぼ  #openpollinated #hillcountryredokra #rice #paddy #paddyfield #固定種 #自然農
Hill Country Red Okra is said to have originated in the eastern portion of the mostly limestone Edwards Plateau in west-central Texas - also known as Texas Hill Country. This area has a large German population and influence, which meant opposition to seceding from the Union during the Civil War, and also meant introducing the accordion to Tejano music, for example. Okra is probably from West Africa, though some claim Ethiopia as the origin. Many believe enslaved Africans hid okra seeds in their hair on their forced journey across the Atlantic. Certainly, this crop is a taste of home for people of the African Diaspora. I'm growing this crop for seed because it's my partner Chris's favorite, and he's an okra fanatic. #okrafanatic #mypartnerchris #hillcountryredokra #hillcountryred #okra #heirloomokra #abelmoschusesculentus
Hill Country Red Okra is my partner's favorite okra - and he loves okra so much it is tattooed on his arm and in his email address. This variety is said to have originated in the eastern portion of the mostly limestone Edwards Plateau in west-central Texas - also known as Texas Hill Country. This area has a large German population and influence, which meant opposition to seceding from the Union during the Civil War, and also meant introducing the accordion to Tejano music, for example. Okra is probably from West Africa, though some claim Ethiopia and South Asia as the origin. Many believe enslaved Africans hid okra seeds in their hair on their forced journey across the Atlantic. Certainly, this crop is a taste of home for people of the African and South Asian diasporas. I'm waiting for the pods to turn woody - that is when the seeds will be ripe both for saving seeds AND for making a coffee substitute. #hillcountryred #hillcountryredokra #abelmoschusesculentus #heirloomokra #texasheirloom #seedkeeping #okracoffee #mypartnerchris
Everyone's excited the okras growing pods! #hillcountryredokra #violetsparklepepper #fatbeagles  #lookathisface #pickyourplate #schmorganic #plot2
Its hard to catch my blooms open like this. My #hillcountryredokra & #clemsonspineless only opens up for a few hours a day #plantpersonality. And every 2-3 days im picking a one or two dozen #okra 4-8inches long. Flavorful and tender. #afrogreend #blackgardener #blackmengarden #ozain #veggieflowers #red #scarlet #green #organic #beautiful #4thharvest
I'm almost tired of you, okra. Almost. #okra #hillcountryredokra #backyardgardening #organicgardening
