Interesting, Robert . . .

Your wife refuses to ride with you since she owns her own SSR?

It's not that. She won't let him ride with her.

Farmer is picking his cotton so thought I'd pictures. Cold snap coming also. View attachment 570234 View attachment 570236
:rolleyes:

No, I would disagree he is "picking" his cotton..............He is maybe (harvesting) and/or gathering his cotton..........but he ain't "pickin' it".

My parents were born/raised in Mississippi. I spent most every summer as a kid down there and had (very brief) experiences as to working with cotton. Kids were let out of school to "pick" cotton back in the day.........they drag long bags behind them as they "picked" each cotton bole. I maybe picked three or four plants myself and also plowed a whole row behind a mule. Also "chopped" cotton too.

Just sayin".....................:)

I will say harvesting, but technically the harvester picks the cotton off the stalk.

    Even the cotton industry calls it a cotton picker.

:rolleyes: OK, ya got me on this one. Now I gotta check on the (corn). Ya used to pick corn also, but I would have thought the machinery that (gathers up) the corn would be known as a harvester......not a picker. I'll look into it.;)

Meantime, ya gotta go back a long time to have plowed behind a mule.

very rarely but they still pick corn with a corn picker. Then the corn and the cob is ground up mostly for livestock feed. On the subject of a plow, a plow is a plow whether it's pulled buy a mule or a whatever. The Amish still use this type of farming. Any other farming subjects you want to talk about.

Yup, I looked it up. Some call them corn pickers, others call them harvesters. I did learn the reason behind the term (combine). That is because the machine in question performs more than one operation. :)

Oh, silly me, I thought the original post would cause more pictures of Fall scenes to be posted :unsure:

Nick
Isn't this fun. Since I started the thread, go ahead post your Fall pictures. Maybe you better wait maybe somebody will come along (@Firetruck) and pay you $25 for your best picture.
