Cotton Update

The combines are out working the fields and leave big rectangular blocks of cotton behind to be delivered to the gins for processing. Today, I stopped and talked to a farmer at Metz Farms and learned a little bit about the process and their goal to be completed by Thanksgiving. The machines leave some cotton behind and he gave me permission to come back and collect whatever I wanted. I'm thinking that big mound in front of the bale is all mine...Just gotta love "The Look, The Feel of Cotton!"
