Or could be this?

Small sized okra = "Trum-poke-her"

Holt’s measure also praises Trump for the economy, the 2028 Summer Olympics and 2026 World Cup.

He left out praising Dumpster for the rising of the sun each morning, and the existence of gravity.

Was there any mention of his fearless leadership in the infantry of Vietnam?

I get why they have a difficult relationship with nuclear power, especially after the Fukushima disaster and their WW2 suffering.

But maybe they feel a need to suck up to the chief MAGAt, who "digs coal". Well, only in his imagination. He couldn't work the mines with those bone spurs...

FWIW, we'll be finding out about the northern latitude thing soon. I'm pretty sure it will grow well in Montana if you start it early, and okra is a GREAT soil buster. Pretty, too.
You have to be very diligent harvesting okra. In just a few days time it will grow past the tender stage to the wooden spike stage worthy of vampire killing.

As for food storage, there is always the philosophy of hunter gatherer tribes who are nomadic but community oriented. “I store meat in the belly of my brother”.

Actually, it freezes quite well.
Yes, I use frozen okra in my gumbo most of the time, since it still provides that thickener aspect. It's a warm weather crop, and I planted it in PA summers when I had a huge garden. But I don't know that it thrives as well at these latitudes in Oregon. Same goes for tomato varieties, when you don't have sweltering summer heat.

I can find fresh okra in most of the larger Asian markets here, but it's still pricey. I'm sure it is trucked north from the central valley areas of California.
