Yeah, I know the song says "...Cotton Fields Back Home", but so far I don't have a fields. I do have a few fluffy, funky-looking seeds though!
A few short rows have gone into the ground. Needless to say my parents, and I am sure others, think I am crazy for even trying them here in Kansas.
I came across an old episode of "Sunflower Journeys" (PBS show on Kansas) of a man that runs one of the two cotton gins in Kansas. So I know it is possible!
I did not plant enough to do much with, even if they do grow as they should. At least not enough to make anything of substance...perhaps in a few months a Minny Mouse sweater will be in order?
