Scoop it up



Now we know how these huge modules of cotton get to the gin.



Piece a' cake


Off to the cotton gin.

Use my "cotton" label for the rest of the story.

Really interesting, Amy. I never knew they baled cotton like that.
I love the last picture with the old barn in the background.

Ah, you wondered (and so did I) how the cotton got to the cotton gin. Now we know! Thanks for being there. :) I love that last shot of the truck leaving with the dust billowing behind.

Amazing how that works.... There are 'machines' to do so many things for us these days... Wow!

Hugs,

That's interesting. We saw those big bales, here in Texas all the time. Wondered how they picked them up.
Gone are the days when they hauled it to the gin in trailers, with it flying all along the road.

That's really cool! I've never seen it done. They make it look easy.

We just drove through GA and I took some photos very much like these! What a joy to see the cotton in the bails..and trucks! We saw some still in the fields, too! You got some great photos!
