What? You never heard of an okralope? Well, I haven't either, but I think that is what you call a cantalope that decides to grow from an okra plant. What? You don't believe me. Well, I have a picture to prove it.
See? I told you. This cantalope has attached itself to the okra plant and is now hanging in air from it. So, it is an okralope.
While we are talking about happenings in the garden here are our fresh picks from early this morning. The bottom of the basket is full of green beans.
We have to start real early in the garden with this extreme heat we have been having. Watermelons are doing well.
Corn is starting to produce the beginnings of the silk.
Okra has been producing pretty good.
Here you can see the beans.
Now you can say you have learned something new today. You learned what an okralope is.
