Umm...well...this is awkward

I don't know what makes them do that, but this isn't the first. It seems to be the red okra that gets deformed more so than the others.

We finally gathered enough for a meal and I baked them with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt & pepper.

Some of them were great, others were God-awful. Trying-to-chew-a-rubber-tire awful. My friend Erika says it's because we let them get too big. Why is this so hard, er, difficult? Oh well, we're learning for next season.

In other gardening news, the passion vine is trying to take over the house. I have no objections to that, it hides the siding.

And thanks to all the recent rain the rest of the garden doesn't look crispy like it did last year!

Salvias rule.
