    Been too hot to work in the Garden last few days, plus busy with a family illness. Result was that today I picked two bags of too tough Okra to eat. Waste not, want not, I cut it open to expose the seeds and fed it to the chickens. They loved it. I always toss my spoiled and excess garden stuff to the chickens, but this is the first time I tried tough Okra pods. Note: My Garden and Chicken run shares a fence which I grow the vine crops on.

    Yeah that's what we do with the tough okra. They love to pick out the seeds.
