    I like okra. But my garden has produced so much okra I am about to founder on fried okra.

    Anyone got a good okra gumbo recipe they'd share? I need to a little variety here....3 gallons of it this week, i think i am turning green...with ridges.

    That reminds me of an experience with zuchinni when we lived in Alaska. THought we would use it as a ground cover in a hard to mow spot AND reap the benefits. The only problem is that there would be a flower in the morning and 24 hours later an 8 inch zuchinni. Better get it then or you couldn't carry it the next day.
    Boiled zuchinni, fried zuchinni, baked zuchinni. Zuchinni Bread, zuchinni cake, zuchinni casserole. ad infintum.

    Otis,

    Could you send it my way as well. My Wisconsin Okra is starting to produce.

    Any one want zuchinni, they are four feet long by 18 to 20 in. around and still growing?

    The garden is producing so much we can't keep up with it. We have beaned every one we know. Freezer is full of veggies, we have 36 qt. ec. of beans and maters canned. Honey onions are coming out our ears, taters are doing great, beets I have turned red, carrots can't find any takers, same for the parnips and turnips. Cabage is made in to Krat but sitll have a lot growing, lettuce looks like trees.

    Despite most of my dad's side of the family being from Okrahoma I hate okra almost as much as I hate beets. I'd rather eat bugs.

    Terrel,

    We planted some beets that are Italian. They have red and white rings inside. You have a red outer, then a white ring, then a red ring and a white ring, then red center. They really have a beet flavor. We did pickle a bunch of them as well. Made a lot of pickles as well, sweet and dill.

    Planted a row of regular beets as well. I like beets as well as the green and wax beans. Beans we fix with some fresh raw honey onions.

    Bobbie has been doing a lot of grilling of our summer squash with honey onions, she doing the same thing with the taters, along with some thick pork chops or a nice beef rib eye. Cuts are an inch or better thick. We are grilling three to four times a week right now.

    I like my steak when you rope it out of the pasture, whipe it nose, cut the horns off, wipe under the tail and trot it across the grill. Stick it with a fork if it still bellers it just right and not over cooked.:clapping:

    I prefer about 140 degrees inside for my stake. Don't want the blood dripping off my chin... but rare is 'ok' sometimes. NEVER eat rare hamburger unless you like dying of listeria or E. Coli infections. And of course I like my hamburger with fried okra!
