I always plant Okra in my garden. It is an indispensable ingredient in the famous Filipino recipe called “Pinakbet”. I actually just cook that today. I gathered enough eggplants, bittermelons, okra and winged beans today that compelled me to make pinakbet. I also gathered some tomatoes which is also an important ingredient for pinakbet. I also have a little bit of green beans so I also incorporate that. That makes it a healthy meal. Vegetarians would love it.
Okra flower is so pretty I always want to take picture of it. Since it is related to Hibiscus, they almost look alike except for the color. I used to have Hollyhock flowers, also in the Hibiscus family in the garden and they are just as pretty.
