    For me, Romanesco broccoli was a very late producer. I kept thinking it wasn't earning its keep and I almost pulled it up too!
    Good thing about okra is the amount it produces so it allows me to harvest the pods when they're succulent and tiny, no larger than 2" and sometimes 1". Some people try to follow the same principle for general vegetable gardening, where they try to get the largest fruit possible. That doesn't work with okra; past a certain size, you're just growing fibers in that pod.

      They are pole beans, the ones I am asking about.  The leaves turned yellow.

      How do you know if the seeds and seed pods are rotten or good ?  My beans are past time now and afraid to collect more seeds…

    I enjoyed watching you work in your garden. I like checking out the roots when I pull them out. It tells you a lot of good information.

    This reminds me that I need to collect my radish seeds!

    Clay, the garden looks good! Liked your comparisons about the okra. Also enjoyed seeing your root analysis. Corn is a heavy feeder, so doing side dressings about once a week helps it develop good root systems. I started doing something Ray at the Praxxus channel does, I did a trench, put some compost in the bottom, then plant my seed on top. As they grow, I pull dirt in from the sides to hill them up. So far so good with this method. Peppers I have found like a loose dark soil to grow in. This year I added a 3 cu. bag of peat moss to the pepper area before planting…again, a good outcome.

    I have been cutting leaves off of my okra about every 2 weeks. I end up taking roughly 1/4 of the leaves off. I have so many pods it is ridiculous.

    Good to see you back, Clay! I sure wish we could grow okra here. It's one of our favorites.

    My Mama's family is from Sylacauga and many still live there. So I'm glad I found your channel it reminds me of home even though I've never lived there. Keep the vids coming.
