them old cotton fields

The farmers actually rotate crops here, from cotton to alfalfa to corn. Cotton sucks the goodness out of the land, so it's also fertilized heavily and, usually,  irrigated. Inches of rain came down last night, and there was unusual snow recently—my cousin got stuck in Birmingham overnight and his kid at school. But the daffodils are up and out now, so hopefully the chance of a freeze is over and spring planting isn't far away.
