Except, there is no okra in the garden! 🙁
Okra is the hardest thing we try to grow. I have to spray it with foliar iron spray at least once a week due to the pH of our soil and even with that, it’s almost impossible to get it to grow.
We planted okra and probably less than half of it came up. I went back and planted in the bare spots and about 1/4th of that seems to have come up. I used different seeds when I replanted. I have to get it up to be able to use the iron spray.
We have done everything we know to do, everything that has been recommended by A & M with our soil test results, and it isn’t successful but we’re not ready to give up.
The weeds had come up and were about 6″ tall and very thick so this morning, we pulled all the irrigation hoses out, added all the compost we had, some purchased composted cow manure, and Vince tilled it all under. He’s going to till it up every few days for a couple of weeks to try to knock down the weeds, then we’ll replant with totally new seeds and if that doesn’t work . . we’ll give up forever on growing okra here. And I will be very sad because I love okra.
