Garden endings

   Our garden is winding down for the season.  We planted some broccoli and lettuce, but the bunnies have found them, so we are wrapping it up until Spring.  We let some of our okra grow really large, and we have them spread out to dry on the back porch.  The kids think it's neat that they seem to pop open at the seams as they begin to dry out, and then they feel like balsa-wood airplanes when they dry completely.  After seeing these cool vase fillers, I decided that some homemade oddities would make a thrifty substitute.

Wow--look at that okra! You must be in a warm area of the country--I haven't had the courage to try growing okra myself--probably a bit too cold here. Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
