This past Christmas we spent some time in NJ with my in-laws. As we were admiring the beautiful Christmas tree, my father-in-law grinned and asked if we liked the okra icicles. I had noticed them but had no idea they were actually made from dried okra. My in-laws, amazingly resourceful and crafty, actually grew the okra, dried them, painted them and rolled them in glitter. I didn’t get a photo of the entire tree but there were about a dozen “okra icicles” and it looked really beautiful. So for you crafty gardeners out there, here is a project for you!
