Ladies Fingers

The flowers of the ladies fingers is really pretty. I love to look at the delicate yellow petals contrasting againt the dark maroon centre. Looking at it, you won't know that it belongs to a vegetable.

One pretty flower five days ago.

The pretty flower turned into a pretty ladies fingers. This picture was taken 3 days ago. Another flower is blooming on the other side. Two more buds are growing!

Couldn't resist taking another shot!

This was taken this morning. The first ladies fingers can be harvested very soon! The second one will be about 3 days after that! Couldn't wait!

I'm going to harvest the first ladies finger maybe tomorrow, where it will be at its best, young, tender and juicy. But what am I to do with only one??? Maybe I'll keep it when I harvest the second one few days later. But then, it's only two. Doesn't matter, will cook it anyway and serve it as homegrown vege ! Wow, fantastic isn't it ??? My second plant is flowering now. I'm going to have more ladies fingers coming soon! Couldn't wait!


  1. I guess by now, you would have cooked this organic vege and I bet it tasted great. Okra flowers look like hibiscus flowers.
