Don’t throw out that Okra tree

We don’t buy our kids many toys. And they don’t miss them one bit. The few toys they do have; they don’t play with. They play with ……. stuff. Pretty much anything other than toys.

You remember those okra trees plants we pulled out a few weeks ago? They were never composted.
They were taken off by a little boy…

I wasn’t sure what he had planned for them, but over the next few weeks I watched those two boys play with those okra plants until they had withered away to nothing.

Literally…till they withered away to nothing.

Kids are so interesting. But I’ll count this as their contribution to our sustainably modern lifestyle. Okra plants turned boy-hood entertainment. Who would of thunk it?

  1. That is AWESOME!! They could not have better toys, and I am sure that when they are grown, the happy memories will be of okra trees.
