Never remove "suckers" from okra as pods grow on the tips of all branches. The more branches, the more pods.

My okra is doing real well, and my idea of planting double-rows of sweet corn between widely-spaced okra rows is turning out to be a good one. The corn will be harvested in late July, so it will be out of the way just when the multi-branching wide Stewart's Zeebest okra plants need the extra room between rows - and I'll get a bonus of about 100 ears of sweet corn from the same ground!

I climbed up on the toolbox of my pickup truck to get this "aerial" view this morning.
