Counting Cotton: Our Cotton Harvest

Well, so far we have harvested 20 cotton bolls (19 brown cotton, 1 green cotton).  That’s not so bad considering, we have battled the brown marmorated stink bug, fungus, and the cotton boll eating squirrel.  There are still more bolls to come and the iron maidens are standing firm.  The squirrel did the most damage to our green cotton plants; however, there is still a chance for maybe 5 green cotton bolls to open.   It is truly an amazing sight to our cotton plants with  puffs of cotton on them.  There were times when we didn’t think we would get to this point mostly due to the squirrel.

We will be better prepared for next year’s adventure!
