Can you believe how much cotton is left in the field after a machine goes through and bales it? So much waste... I collected some more cotton today. I am sure we will use it on our Yule tree. We are in Alabama. i am sure we can make it work. i may even take some seeds and plant them in the yard to see if we can grow our own cotton plant.. Now that would be cool. I bet no one in the neighborhood would have one of those!
