Cotton Colors & Cotton Bolls

Whew, August just flew by but our cotton plants are still going strong and getting ready for the cooler weather.

On August 23rd, the day we experienced our first earthquake in Baltimore, we came home to a special surprise–our first cotton boll bloomed. Surprisingly, it was a green cotton boll.  Since then, we have harvested a few more green cotton bolls and some brown cotton, too. We are keeping our fingers crossed for the pima cotton.

Of course, the curious squirrel did find out cotton plants and started to munch on the cotton bolls; however, we learned from last year and quickly put the cotton plants in their protective iron maiden.
