Red Okra

First time growing this variety of okra.

Photo taken this morning using my handphone...that explains the not so clear image....
look at those tiny flower buds.:-)

This is from the packet i got from my late father's collection of seeds.

It almost expired when i started to germinate them.

From 8 seedlings, only 2 managed to survive.

An okra plan with some sentimental value this is.....:)

“It always amazes me to look at the little, wrinkled brown seeds and think of the rainbows in 'em," said Captain Jim. "When I ponder on them seeds I don't find it nowise hard to believe that we've got souls that'll live in other worlds. You couldn't hardly believe there was life in them tiny things, some no bigger than grains of dust, let alone colour and scent, if you hadn't seen the miracle, could you?”
