Who knew deer liked okra?

3 years ago

I've been growing okra for several years since it seems to do well in my hot summers and doesn't have much disease and pest problems. Last week something ate all the upper leaves off the plants, and they are 5'+ high at this time of year. I figure a deer must have strolled through the yard and taken a liking to them.

Amazingly they are still producing and growing leaves back too.

Since this is the Clinic, I'll also say that some of the bottom leaves have been drying up and falling off as they grow taller. I don't know if that's lack of nitrogen or...? Any okra experts here?
