|We planted some okra this year and as of today (10/24/16) the plants are over 8 ft tall and produce okra pods in clusters. Is this normal? We put some mineral water on them once a day and they took off like crazy. The okra is meaty and tastes good.

Yep, looks like a really happy okra plant. I'm not sure the mineral water is responsible for this mega-okra though.
I would worry about eventual mineral buildup in the soil.

|Great okra !!! Your doing something right. Where you live. WHAT variety. Ya growing ? My okra. as it grows. it loses its leaves about 1/2 down its height. And by the end of season. It only has only about 4 to 6 leaves at top. But an okra at every leaf.
Yours look like there still full of leaves. !!! And😄 happy happy !!!
So I'd appreciate variety and where you live !!! Thank-you !
Oh !!! Some okra grows to 12 foot tall i've been told !!!
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.
