I planted 18 cotton seeds. Everyone (three of you) wanted to know what I would do with my abundant cotton harvest.
Never fear; there will be no excess cotton to brush and spin.
Here's the 1 out of 18 cotton plants to sprout, circled in yellow. The rest molded.
On the bright side, surrounding the lone cotton seedling are a bunch of happy little "Virginia Select" Amish Paste tomato seedlings that will grow up to make a year's supply of ketchup and tomato sauce for us.
