Okra growing in clackamas county
I have tried repeatedly to grow okra in the warmest area of my small garden. It has failed the last two years. The seeds germinated and I get less than 1 inch growth when the small plants disappear. I have a area about 1- feet long by 2.5 feet wide. It's next to the blacktop parking space so that is the warmest surface area for okra. Against the lattice fence I plant (and successfully grow snow peas) and plant the okra seeds in a row in front of the snow peas. I have had the okra grow, and be picked, perhaps 3 out of 10 years. For next year, what do I need to do differently?
