Yesterday my husband and I went to visit his sister and on the way to her house we passed several cotton fields. Finally as we got closer to his sister's house I could not hold it any longer I made him stop the car so that I could get out and go and touch the cotton growing. I could not believe that cotton actually grows just like the balls you get at the drug store. YOu know the cotton balls that we use to cleanse our faces, I know that there is more of a process to it than just picking the cotton and using it. I went on a search to find out more about the process and found some very interesting articles. On article talks about how the cotton is picked then separated from the seed. There are certain machines that are used for this process and you can read about them in on this website called Cotton's Journey. Of course I took these pictures so that anybody that has not seen cotton growing up close and personal here it is through my eyes. One day I will go to the fields when I see the cotton trucks out there picking and processing. Until then here are some photos I took.
