So Long, and Thanks for All the Okra

We had a big nasty frost this week, and it slaughtered some of my remaining crops.  Poor guys.  All the okra, green beans, basil, and peppers are now dead, so I thought I’d share the final results.  My “jolly green giant” okra plant ended up measuring 14 ft. 11 inches, which included 2 full feet of root.  The other okra plants averaged about 8 feet.  Also, much to my amazement, I ate two ripe raspberries off my bush last night, and there are two more ripening right now!  When will it stop?  I’m hoping never!


Sorry for the subpar photo, the good camera is on vacation in Washington, D.C.
