Snowing in the South?

Well, not really snow...but it's as close as we get! The girls and I took some time the other day to play in the cotton. It's so beautiful. It's one of my favorite memories of fall.
Alabama farmers planted nearly 550,000 acres of cotton in 2005. Farmers harvested 545,000 acres with estimated yields of 749 pounds per acre for a total of about 850,000 bales in 2005. Cotton is grown in 59 of Alabama's 67 counties and had cash receipts totaling nearly $205 million in 2004. Alabama rates ninth in the nation for cotton production.
