Okra is in the hibiscus family, which of course I never knew because I've never had any reason to learn about it since I've never grown it. Now I know! I would grow these plants just for the lovely flowers!
Which reminds me, I really need to find some cranberry hibiscus.

Stay tuned for the fruit and vegetable tour!
