mandy and steve at 3 porch farm planted a crop of organic cotton this year. they planted a few white varieties, but also a brown one. both were beautiful, in the field and out. mandy said it was a fairly easy crop to tend...they planted it and let it be. i have learned more about organic cotton than i ever thought i would (see here and here) and love seeing it growing so close to home.
