I wonder more each day if the cotton is going to make it to harvest. The plants are loaded with squares (ironically the triangular frilly green bud holders).
Cotton bud hiding
I peaked inside one of the squares to see a bud that had formed. I could see in the of the bud that there was a light colored petal(s) rolled up that will push open some day. The problem is that the canopy of leaves fully covers all of the squares and the squares full cover the buds.
Row of cotton plants
We have had a cooler and wetter summer than normal. Cotton likes hot and dry conditions. I am sitting on the edge of my seat with anticipation. Will I be able to harvest cotton from these plants this year?
I am an eclectic person. I’ve broken the mold for the stereotype of what an accountant is like (as an accountant with a very creative side). I LOVE to challenge what “always has been”. Let’s look at things and think about them. Is there a "better" out there that we have missed because “it’s always been this way”? “Live, Laugh and Love” is one of my mottos. There is so much beauty in life we just need to stop and appreciate it. “Dance like no one is watching!” because the music in your head doesn’t match what’s playing for anyone else. :^)
