I tried chicken gumbo for the first time this summer and it was so good. I grew okra, which worked surprisingly since it is a warm weather vegetable. My plants were small, but they produced. I will do them again next year. I went online to find a recipe, and didn't use sausage but we sure enjoyed it.
