Organic Cotton

I grew cotton here on the finca for the first time two years ago. It didn't grow very tall and there weren't that many bolls, enough to get a feel for the process and a little understanding of what it's like to spin cotton. Fiddley but I enjoyed it.

This year I grew a bit more. The plants were healthier and a bit stronger. I hope this is an indication that our soil improvement is working!


If anyone wants some seeds. Drop me an email with your name and address. J dot LeGalloudec at symbol and I'll put a few in the post for you. A long hot summer is required for the bolls to form but I believe you can still grow the bushes even if it's not that warm where you live.
