  9. @landrace2010 … like I stated earlier, I offered it to several people and no one wanted to pick it, so right now it’s composting in the garden. Wasn’t much else I could do with it……….Donald

  13. @JoeHell67 … Hey Joe, the problem with giving it away to poor people is everyone I offered it to was too lazy to come pick it. Check out my videos and you’ll find a good recipe on microwaved Okra. It is good……..Donald

  14. Hello Donald,
    Okra is something that we in germany relate as a turkish veggie!
    no fresh Okra in supermarkets but it’s available in cans with oil and diced tomatoes in the turkish food section!

    can’t you give the Okra away for free to poor people? I mean, you have no use for it anyway… so sad to see it getting taking down…

    Do you have some Okra recipes?

    best wishes!
    Joe from Germany
