So we came back having been out of town for a week, and the vegetable garden has gone wild! The cucumber vines are climbing up the okra and tomato cages, tons of tomatoes have appeared where I swear there were only a few meager blossoms before, and the okra... 10 - 12 inch pods are everywhere.
Can I do anything other than compost these Clemson spineless beasts? I do have a few smaller pods ( 2 - 6 inches) that I'm planning to cook up, but my understanding is that the larger ones are just too tough to digest. I do have a pressure cooker and so am tempted to try making the big ones palatable, but I thought I'd ask if anyone's already been-there-done-that before I try.
