Last year we lost our okra garden to deer, foreshadowing the havoc they would wreak on our farm this year.
But fortunately they spared the okra this year, devoting themselves to eating our tomatoes and peppers instead.
Okra is one of Africa’s many great contributions to Southern cuisine and culture. It’s part of what summer in the South tastes like. We love it and we’re pleased to have it back.
And we’re not the only people in our community who are happy to see it return to White Flint Farm. This morning we’ll have it at the farmers market and I expect it will sell out quickly.
