Sky Watch Friday: Cotton, October 29, 2021

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, October 27, 2021
We had sunny skies for the first part of the week, but clouds began moving in on Wednesday. Today's forecast is for rain all day and on into the night.

The crop in the field is cotton ready for harvest. Light rain will not hurt it, but heavy rain is bad news.

I hope you have a good weather!

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16

"Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your Heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much better than they? Matthew 6:26

"Cast all your cares upon Him, for He cares for you" 1 Peter 5:7


  1. I am assuming that it is mechanically harvested these days.

    1. Yes, the only cotton still picked by hand are small plots planted for Fall Festival events for visitors to see it growing and experience picking a handful or two.

  2. Reminded me of the cotton fields where I once lived.

  3. Pretty sky shot. I have seen cotton field in my travels, I hope there is not a heavy rain. Take care, enjoy your day! Happy weekend!

  4. I thought the cotton was snow at first glance! I’ve seen it growing but it always fascinates me.

  5. I have never seen cotton growing before either. I too thought it was snow at first. ;-)

  6. I've seen cotton grow but not up close. With all our rain, if we were able to grow cotton here in New York State, it wouldn't have made its crop.

  7. Cotton is not something I have seen growing, at least in memory. I was only in the South once, in childhood, and that was in spring.


I enjoy your comments!
