you can't limit the garden to just 5 things or maybe I just can't count. How about just a half of a row does that count for half of a choice??

My wife is the gardener, and went a little crazy when we enlarged the gardens. But 5 of the standards are:

Asparagus
Broccoli
Leaf lettuce
Tomatoes
Green Beans

She planted okra this year...I think you have to be born and raised in the south to like okra...this yankee hasn't acquired a taste for it.

Walt,
how is your wife fixin that okra, I can just about make a meal on it.

Have her cut it in slices about 1/2" thick roll in meal and then fry it in greased skillet til browned.

How about an okra pattie, cut into slices 1/2" and then quarter it, add egg, salt and pepper, dice up a red tomato, add flour til thick enough to make a pattie, fry slow in greased skillet.

I guess I've just got no sense of taste...she's fried it, sliced and sauteed it, put it in ratatouille and had it in gumbo. I liked the gumbo.

I thought fried would be the way to go, because the first thing I learned in Texas was, "If it can't be fried in bacon grease it ain't worth cook'in, let alone eat'in."

The neighbors think I'm nuts...they may be right. :)
