Wordless Wednesday - Field of Cotton


Anonymous said...

I have cousins who tell me they had to pick cotton before going to school; in South Carolina. They're my age.

Having been raised in New York, it is a hard concept for me to grasp. Especially after looking at your pictures!

Can I say 'naive'? LOL

Thank you for posting this picture. Picking cotton played a big role in my mother's family. As a matter of fact, she quit school after 8th grade because every year she had to wait until cotton picking was finished to be able to start school.

And we think we have it tough today! Oh my aching back from just looking at all that cotton! Thanks, Dru!
