"Cotton Pickin' Time"
Actually a lot has already been picked. We saw this field and it looked like nothing had been done to prepare it to be picked. They spray some kind of poison on it so the leaves and plants actually die before they pick it. That way the pickers get only the cotton. If this field had been sprayed it was recently because it still had a lot of leaves. It's amazing that so many things we take for granted are made from this plant.
I appreciate your comments on my photos and enjoyed the ones on the camel yesterday. Yes it is a long way from home. We were also told to be careful because it would spit on us. It never did, thankfully.
