I don't know a lot about cotton farming, but it appears to be a good crop

The cotton fields look beautiful in Smithfield, Virginia, Roy.  Just don't ask me to pick that cotton.

Lovely photo from one of your FB friends Roy. It all looks so perfect and that cloud formation is gorgeous!

Roy Kelley I've seen a yard look like that after a dog chewed up a stuffed animal but never a field.

That is beautiful Roy. I have never seen a cotton field in real life that I know of. Actually, before your photo, I think I have only seen them in history books!

That's an amazing picture, Roy.  I remember the first time I saw a cotton field.  It was back in the 1970s near Bakersfield, California.

That's a nice picture and I find it interesting.  I actually have 1 cotton tree in my yard and just love the cotton it provides me.  Very abundant.

Driving to our condo in Florida we passed cotton fields that looked a lot like this. I am glad they use equipment to pick it.
