Fall is rapidly approaching......our crops are "doing their thang". Here is a quick show and tell about our cotton. The first day it blooms the flower is this creamy white.
And believe it or not that same white flower turns pink. After it turns pink it then shrivels up and falls off.
After a short time, where the flower fell off this round green bulb starts growing. Soon we will see this bulb start spliting and opening up. That may be a little while yet. The earliest we have ever harvest cotton has been in October. This ladies is the beginnings of where all that beautiful fabric we buy for our quilts comes from!!! Who knows, some of you may have quilts made from some of "OUR" cotton.
Here is a whole field of those flowers and bulbs. You can see pink and white flowers mixed. The green bulbs come on in stages. Here is a field of our cotton right here on the North side of our place. Where I live...this scene is about all you see right now in all 4 directions. I hope you enjoyed seeing the process. I will show the next stages as they come about. Right now I am busy making my pear preserves, it is a 2 day process for one batch. I'll show you my results as soon as I get the sticky wiped off the jars.
