    I've been harvesting asparagus for a little over a week, but of course that's from an established bed.
    Today I put in 3 30' rows of okra and 4 30' rows of Blue Lake bush beens.
    Last year I did about the same and the okra never got over 4" tall and then died out.
    The beans were prolific in their production, I guess we'll see how it all transpires this season.

    THANX RICH

    I have to ask you Dickiebird, since you eat all your meals at restaurants what do you do with all the veggies you raise?

    Sell them and give some away.
    I mostly just grow stuff to see it grow.
    At Thanksgiving and Christmas we go to some friends place and everyone brings a dish and mine is mushroom soup and bean casserole.
    Also with the first batch of beans I pick I get a ham shank and cook it with onions garlic and new potatoes, that I do eat at home.
    Tomatoes, okra, basil and other herbs go to a local restaurants, beans, peppers and asparagus go to friends.
    I use my mint in my iced tea.

    THANX RICH

    I knew you couldn't grow a garden and not enjoy a few meals from it.
    Sounds like you grow a lot!

    No okra sprouting yet, but my beans are sticking their heads out.
    Asparagus is still going great guns.

    They produce very well, and I mean "if you don't harvest every day they will get huge and too tough to eat" well.
