About Okra

Okra growing at Wise Farms

At the market...waiting to go home with you!

Pods washed...stems cut off...sliced into bite-size pieces.

Salted and breaded with corn meal mix from House Autry,
a local company in Four Oaks, NC.

Sizzlin' in hot cooking oil...in my fam-favorite iron skillet.
Ready to eat!

Ok...so it's been a while. I apologize to my faithful readers. I have new farm pictures to share. Here's a couple from the watermelon patch. They are ripe and ready and at the Market now!

Sugar Babies!

Crimson, my favorite! :)

If you could have only one pan for cooking what would you choose? My personal favorite is my 10-inch iron skillet. I received mine as a wedding gift, and it is definitely the most used pan in my house. I can cook anything in it! Like women and wine, the older it gets, the better! Here it is sauteeing my yellow squash and onion.
