Picking Cotton in California
I recently had the opportunity to see my first 'live cotton field'. On a road trip, between the San Franciscco Bay area and Yosemite National Park, we drove through Merced and acres and acres of cotton fields.
So, we stopped the car and I got to pick some cotton to use in the Textiles class at the college.
