Is okra mass planted or can just a few plants get decent yields? I am experimenting with 8 okra plants but am not sure if they will produce enough for a gumbo or jambalaya dish. They get plenty of sun and I water often and deep. I'm using the volcano shape planting plan this year. . . mounds with bowl on top, plant in center. It's working well.
I think you will be pleasantly surprised. They can be picked every other day and that should provide more than enough for your dish.
