growing okra and how soon to cut it

Okra is easy to grow! The downside is that you need to cut it once or maybe even twice a day when it really gets into rapid growth. If you don’t you will get these gnarly huge pods that are useless to eat or can! The first couple of years of gardening, I used to cut these off and throw them away. Then I saw that you could buy them dried in Hobby Lobby for quite a good price. I had to figure out how to dry mine and now every winter I sell about 20 auctions worth on Ebay. These sales have 20-25 pods in each.
