|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.
