Picking Cotton and Loading Bales — 6 Comments

  1. I had no idea that was how cotton is baled – what a great post!! Now, if you want to know about milking or hay, I might be your girl πŸ™‚

    • Yes, there’s just so much to learn when it comes to farming. And every time I figure something out, they come out with a new technology! πŸ™‚ Now it’s cotton round balers coming out all over.

  2. How lovely to be able to see that! I’ve only seen cotton fields one time in my life.
    Now, I can look out my windows and see Amish farms and cows grazing, love that too!

    • We loved harvest season when we lived in Amish country (central PA) too! Seeing the horses and the traditional corn shocks…beautiful and so visually rich!

  3. Thank you for posting. I lived for 50 years in south GA, and moved away a little over a year ago. I didn’t really think that I would miss the rural sights of the south, because, well – I moved to PA and we actually have FALL here (in other words – leaves turn colors other than brown); however, seeing your photos brought back memories of country drives (favorite activity). So, thank you!

    • OH, thank you for stopping by! We lived in central PA for a few years right after college and it was just beautiful. Part of me misses the way the mountains just caught on FIRE in the fall! πŸ™‚ But yes, nothing is quite so southern as field covered in cotton.
