They say you canr grow okra here but i amtrying anyway. Might have to be in container to warm the soil. Ladt frost here is mid may

Ahh, does it get warm enough to be able to keep them outside where you are? Our frost season is just ending, statistically the 10th of April is the "safe" planting time. I'm in Kentucky.

I soaked my okra seeds overnight in water then planted them in seed starter medium. Germination was good. Its after that I have trouble. Ive been growing one indoors under fl. light. It has flower buds. Kind of puny tho.

I believe it will but I had no success with it from seeds when I tried one year. They never sprouted. I may try okra again this year especially if I can find some seedlings. My wife loves it as well.

Brandon, that's excellent.  Those also sound like great choices for kids.  They grow fast, big, dramatic, and usually not to picky about conditions.

Does  okra grow in your area?  It's my holy grail.  Too cool here for a good crop.

Thanks! I've started growing some plants from seeds this year. I have a 6 year old daughter who was fascinated by the watermelon we "planted" last year,(dropped into a rock bed) and we are planning to grow some more of those this year. Also some tomatoes, pumpkins, zucchini, and corn.

Brandon, welcome!  What are you growing?

I tried off and on for an hour trying to get my tiller to start. I think it wouldn't because of old gasoline. About threw my shoulder out! Now, it's too late for a long while. Rain, rain, and more rain. Hope it doesn't ruin the kale and lettuce we planted two days ago.

I'd like to think I am a blend of A and B personalities. I'm happy, whichever.

Randall, it sounds like a great way for the family to work together. I hope the kale grows strong and tasty.

Most would say Im an A personality but with a strong dose of introversion. But mostly I like puttering, which is really a form of meditation.

With all of the rain a lot of the bearded irises are rotting. Bummer. But evolution sill pick the winners.
