The one crop that never fails to grow in these harsh Texas weather conditions is Okra.
I have dried several jars of Okra and have now started pickling it as well. We eat pickled okra like it is going out of style so the more the better.
We may not have fresh canned tomatoes, potatoes or any other fresh canned garden veggies on the shelves that would have been there if we could have had some rain, but we sure do have the Okra. My Mom and Dad always plants way more okra in their gardens that can ever be eaten. If it was not for that, I guess I would have to buy it instead.
