That is wonderful. Go for it and enjoy your grandkids. They grow up so fast, you sure don’t want to miss that.Going from NE Indiana to SW Indiana. We’ve lived in country and now wife wants to move to a new house in a settlement. I just want to be close to grands. Time for them to know how crazy their G’pa really is……. Although trying to keep up with them about killed me for 3 days. They are energized bunnies. I’m working in dead batteries.
Just an update. The okra is still producing, albeit more slowly. !0 of the 32 clusters (those planted in the same area where okra grew last year) are stunted & have been abandoned, so only the front 22 clusters are still bearing. As anticipated, some plants in most clusters have dropped leaves & stopped growing; but at least 2 plants per cluster remain strong, and are still blossoming. Early in the season, I let one pod per cluster grow for seed (on the strongest plant in each cluster) and those pods have now begun to dry down.
