One of the farmer booths at the Fayetteville FM sells
their okra in pint-size clam shells, pointy end sticking up,
so they look neat and tidy and those lady farmers
were selling lady fingers in clam shells like hot cakes.  

They sell for $2.50 a pint, so I bought two pints
and took them home to eat raw.

But first I counted 46 fingers, which calculates
out to ten or 11 cents each. 

They pick em short, no more than 3 inches.
