Fighting Weeds in the Organic Cotton

This has not been an easy year for organic cotton.

First the year was dry making it hard to get a crop started in the fields, now there has been an abundance of rain. The rain is good for the cotton and the hemp, but it also encourages the weeds. We have been plowing the fields everyday that it is dry enough for a couple of weeks. Hoeing in the fields as well. The race is still on to see if it will be us or the weeds that win in many of our organic cotton fields.

This field looks better than most, but it shows you how the cotton is coming along.

Blessings,
Betty
