|Horse farm east of my house|
To the south of our subdivision are alfalfa fields, and to the east are at least 15 horse farms. There are also dairy farms nearby.
|Harvested alfalfa field|
The other two sides of our subdivision are surrounded by cotton fields. There are many more cotton fields in this area than alfalfa fields.
The boll will mature and pop, exposing fluffy, white cotton.
When cotton is harvested here in late fall, there will be many stray peices of cotton that blow down the roads.
The very green looks of the fields in the above photos are deceptive. All of the fields are heavily irrigated, and if you drive a few miles away, there is nothing but brown dirt.
