Ooo... can you show the whole plant? This is the first time I see a cotton plant. I wonder if it can be easily planted.

Oh my! What a harvest, Indrani! Are the pods picked by hand? or machine (I hope)? :)

WillThink4Wine said...

We still have cotton fields here in the south, but I've never seen the pile created in the harvest!

That's a lot of cotton and I can just imagine all those beautiful fabrics made from it...

Strider said...

I wonder what it would feel like if I fall on that mound of cotton? Pluffy...

Have a great WW!

Strider said...

Great heap of cotton. How many for a tonne?

Happy WW!

Gabriel said...

That's really cool. We grow cotton in my native country (Argentina), but I never got to see them the way you showed them ('cotton country' is too far North).

My WW post is called "At the movies". It will be up in about 4 hours.

Happy WW!
