Cotton field

Posted by Harry (Apex, NC, United States) on 22 November 2017 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

We passed a number of cotton fields ready to be harvested. The boles were open, giving the field a snow-covered appearance. We passed a few that had already been picked, with the cotton in huge, plastic wrapped bales. We asked a local when the cotton was harvested and he said something like "oh, about now. you know, November or December. Gotta get the peanuts in first, because if they get rained on they are ruined."

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at It is gone now.
