Artist's Description

One of the best things about Autumn in Arkansas, is the Cotton Harvest. Its usually the last thing harvested here. First harvested, in early spring, is Winter Wheat. Then Rice, Corn, Milo and Soybeans are planted. Corn and Milo harvests out first, then Rice and Soybeans. Depending on if we had a long wet spring, and when it was planted. Finally, in September/October Cotton can be harvested. It, along with Rice, and I think Soybeans, has to have Defoliant sprayed on it, exposing the crop and ridding it of the leaves. Well, they may all get defoliated. Its been a LONG time since I lived on my dads farm! I have forgotten the routine! But this seems to be in the process of Defoliation. Some leaves are dying. If they waited for it to die naturally, like in the 1800s, it could be MONTHS!!! But it has to be harvest before the winter rains start, for it may mold and ruin in the field…And here in Arkansas, a strange transformation comes over farmers in November. For November is when DUCK SEASON and DEER SEASON starts. NO FARMER wants to be seen harvesting during this Sacred Time! NOTHING will stand between them and the duck/deer blind. Its a third religion here ! LOL……Taken near England, Ark USA with a SanyoVPC-E2100.
