Okra seed saving question
Hey, Gang! I may be over-thinking this and it seems it shouldn't be so difficult, but I'm having a hard time saving my cowhorn okra seed.
Being as we have had a very dry, time-challenged summer - I didn't get all my okra cut at the right time so I laid the large, tough ones out on the covered front deck to dry. Last weekend I started opening the pods and almost all the seeds were shriveled up. Just a few that looked "right". Did I leave them too long? Will those still produce? I've got a cookie sheet full of more tough pods and I'd like to do this batch right. Any suggestions? I'll welcome any advice!
