Cotton: End of the Season

The days are getting shorter and the nights are cooler but our cotton plants still have more bolls to open.  Now, it’s a race against the weather.  We are faithfully watching the weather for any forecast of rain since water will destroy any open cotton bolls; it is best to trim the open bolls and allow them to dry inside and watch them fluff.  Our cotton plants are displaying some fall colors but most of the leaves have already fallen off.
