Picking Okra

Our garden is in full swing and I seem to be picking okra constantly. It's my favorite vegetable, so we planted 7 plants. The green pods are popping up as fast as I can clip them. Our organic garden is truly the best inspiration for me in the kitchen. Of course, I've fried batches, made okra pancakes, and even had a mishap with roasted okra. My pods were apparently too large to roast and I almost lost a tooth trying to eat one.
This is an okra flower from one of the plants. It's my new favorite flower.
