@DonDuck I don't know about in Texas, but in Idaho my okra produces until the frost as long as I'm harvesting it regularly. If I'm keeping pods on for seed, then it often stops. The volunteer okra I have this year is producing very well for me not having harvested any of it, though.

@Worth That's a great idea! Okra has been difficult to sprout in our soil (even when it's hot), when direct-seeding (so, I usually start it early in foam cups). I think that wet paper towel trick would help a great deal with direct-seeding okra. I'm not particularly fond of the wet paper towel method for pre-starting tomatoes and things without direct-seeding, but okra grows roots pretty fast (and I never thought about pre-starting seeds for direct-seeding).
