... vs new cotton.
I just got back from what was effectively a full, 40-hour work week of driving and I'm beat. I went out back into my tiny cotton patch and discovered that a whole bunch of bolls had popped. My Red Foliated is the most active. It's a young, modern cotton. My Nankeen, an Antebellum heirloom cotton, is not far behind. It comes out brown. My Mississippi Brown, another Antebellum heirloom, is taking it's own, sweet, Southern time.
I love my Mississippi Brown. It makes me smile.
I'm pretty beat and am smoking a chicken for one of our sons while I drink some craft beer, so a couple of photos is all I can do.
I hope y'all are having a great week. Enjoy!
