My guess is that most of you never ever have seen a real cotton field. Sunday when we came out of Church, they had started mechanical picking of cotton in our neighborhood. So we did hurry for getting some photos before it would be all gone. Proudly showing you here a local Cotton Field in the Heart of Georgia/USA. A surprise below the first photos, our VERY FIRST view of a cotton field in November of 1983...
Wearing the Advent color, my Escada jacket, I am holding fresh cotton puff. See below my post the comment from 'seedscatterer' as she is very knowledgeable about cotton.
It looks very much like the cotton balls you buy.
The reason they started harvesting this field on Sunday was because of rain on Monday...
JIT = Just In Time!
Fields here in Georgia are always big because work is done mechanically so it doesn't matter what length.
So this is the landscape, only half a mile from our home.
Showing my black Escada cotton jeans (ironically...) and wool jacket.

Detail of how those cotton puffs are on the plant...
It is quite late for harvesting them on December 16, in our opinion but who are we to know anything about it?
This photo is taken from husband Pieter on Sunday, November 7, 1983... The VERY FIRST time we saw cotton ourselves; only 29 years ago!
This was quite an experience for holding it for the first time!
Only 29 years ago...
My hand showing one cotton boll that is not yet opened completely...
Hope you enjoyed this tour through rural Georgia for seeing what is growing on our fields.
Certainly this is not the fine, long staple, Egyptian Cotton that we use for our bed linens.
American grown cotton is mainly short staple cotton.
But I must admit that I have no clue what this one will be used for...
Thanks for your time!
