I don't care for Okra but Carolyn loves it.  We eat at Golden Corral every once in a while and she can get it there. We been getting Cabbage, Beets, Broccoli and Cauliflower.  Have a couple heads of each left.   Onions are doing good also.  Weeds have kind of taken over the beets and onions as we had so much rain earlier and could not to it. Then it turned off hotter than blazes.  Kept the rest in good shape to didn't worry about the beets and onions.  Will let it go till the onions tops start to fall over then hit it with round up, pull thew beets and process them.  Then pull the onions and let them dry good.  Don't really have a good place to keep them where it is cool so usually freeze them.  tomatoes are not ripening yet but look out when they do. 13 plants looking good.  Hope the goats like tomatoes !!

You are throwing away the best part of the beets. You cut the tops off and cook them and throw the bulb away. The tops make good eating greens.

I've never had beet greens but love turnip greens & poke. I'm assuming you fix them the same way. Our beets will be dug this week so the greens are probably too large now.
