It takes 160 to 180 days to harvest cotton. We have made it to day 156 but I am concerned. We had a couple of nights in the high 40's low 50's this last week. Every day has made it up to 60 degrees.
The plants are still very green and multiple blooms are visible on any given day. With all of the buds, I was hoping to see white flowers one day with all of the buds in bloom. Instead they have been blooming a few at a time.
Tucked beneath the canopy of green are white and pink flowers by the dozens. There are also seed pods getting larger by the day. The final picture that I am showing you is the first pink flower that I tooka picture of for you. I have the feeling that I will get at least one tuft of cotton.
It has been exciting learning about cotton growing. I might create a special green house to try it again next summer. But before I get ahead of myself, I need to finish this summers harvest.
