Ok so a couple of weeks ago i planted my okra....well it still hasnt sprouted, so i called to talk to my grandma on her birthday on sunday, and she asked me if i sprouted them...i was like uhhh wtf?? And she said to soak the okra seeds in straight bleach for like 3 hours and then plant them...so i was kind of skeptical about it, but tried it anyways...and this is freakin AWESOME!!! Check it out!!

**Forgive me if you already know this, i dont garden lol! Usually i kill everything i plant

This was around 4pm when i first put them in the bleach

And these two were around 530pm when i checked on them...

Ok and this is a little after 7pm

yea, that's called SOA  ... they think they are going to die so they get the heck out of it as soon as they can....  just like if you want a bush to flower early you beat the snot out of it with a 2x4 and a week later... voila!
