Plant Event Reports from pod - east Texas pineywoods (Zone 8a)

Plant Date(s) Report
Okra (Abelmoschus esculentus 'Burmese') On August 4, 2018 Harvested
As of this date, I have been harvesting Okra for two months. I have been pleased with it. It is delicious to eat raw by slicing it in a salad when tender as well as stir fried. I will grow it next season.
Crinum 'Vera Cruz' On August 4, 2018 Miscellaneous Event
Much to my surprise, this Crinum has not bloomed but there are now small plants forming all around the parent bulb.
Okra (Abelmoschus esculentus 'Burmese') On July 3, 2018 Obtained plant
This Burmese okra has been delivering blooms and fruit for a month now. The plants are only 12 to 18 inches in height at this time.
Crinum 'Vera Cruz' On May 23, 2018 Plant emerged
This plant has struggled. When acquired, the bulb had a soft spot. I treated it with cinnamon. This spring it appeared to have rotted. I impatiently removed it from the container to find new white root growth. Again, I left it out to dry, treated with cinnamon and then repotted. I was afraid it was done but today, I find new growth. Treating it again with a dusting of cinnamon and keeping my fingers crossed. This is the most difficult of the Crinums I have dealt with.
Okra (Abelmoschus esculentus 'Burmese') On May 7, 2018 Transplanted
Officially planted 10 Burmese okra plants in ground.
Okra (Abelmoschus esculentus 'Burmese') On March 13, 2018 Seeds sown
After soaking overnight in a shallow bowl of water and peroxide, these seeds had all germinated. Today (March 13, 18) they were planted in starter containers.
