It’s cotton time!

Cotton Seeds

Cotton Seeds

It’s been a few years since we last grew cotton. So this year, we decided it was time! To add a twist,  we purchased seeds from Southern Exposure Seed Exchange. The seed packets are beautiful and the web site is full of great advice.  If you get a chance, checkout the site. This year we will be growing Nankeen brown cotton and Erlene’s green cotton.  Each one has an interesting story; Nankeen cotton has been grown since the Civil War and Erlene’s green cotton is a family heirloom seed grown in east Texas by Erlene Melancon.  We planted our seeds on March 3rd…so begins our new adventure in growing cotton in our new house.
