Okra leaves falling off

Steve349July 31, 2014

Im growing okra and the lower leaves are browning and falling off. Is this normal?
Its blooming and growing and I have harvesting pods but dont know why the lower leaves turn brown and eventually just fall off.

Normal for the plant to lose its lower leaves, As long as the growing tips are healthy you are ok.
