I will be leaving soon for two weeks. Nobody will be able to harvest from my vegetable garden.
Water will be on a timer, so no problem there.
I am worry that my Okra plants will produce those huge "missile" size pods while I am away ... and they'd stunt the plants for a while.
So here is my idea and I hope some of you did try before:
I 'd like to trim the top of the plant just below each flower bud cluster ... in this way the plant will take the time to develop new branches and not pods ... and when I come home I will have pods ...
