Getting Dirty in the Cotton Patch

Sorry to say my husband and I did NOT get it on in a cotton patch. I know, you were expecting some juicy details weren't you? 

Well, unless you count the cows we saw trying to show us how it's done that's all the juicy details I have for you. ;P

After working on our house for a few hours, B and I went out to his cotton fields on Sunday to see how the new picker his dad has was working. I'm pleased to report that it's a fabulous picking machine. It even bails the cotton for you. Speaking of awesome farming technology, it's crazy how far we've come since the days of planting fields with a horse and picking cotton by hand. Cray cray!!

Astro had a fabulous time out in the fields too. For some reason he seems to mind so much better when he's in unfamiliar territory. Lucky for me I didn't have to go chasing after him or raise my voice scream-at-the-top-of-my-lungs to get him to come back to me. I'd be more than a hot mess and even worse, sweaty. Oh who am I kidding, it's flippin' hot here in south Texas, so I'm always hot and sweaty. Ehh, but what's new? 

Happy Wednesday, folks!

  2. Beautiful photos! I love that shot of your pup trotting through the cotton. It is amazing to think how far technology has come since the days of doing things by hand.

    Thanks for sharing your world of cotton with all of us who don't get to see those things very often! (:
