....is NEVER done!! This farmer rents the fields right next door at my mother in laws. It has changed very much over the years. The cab of this harvesting machine is actually air conditioned. I took this shot last year while he was getting up the cotton. It still is not a very easy job!

    I know they are glad to have machinery to do it now. It is so hard to pick it by hand. Great entry.

    Great photo Betty !!
    I love these big farm machines.
    We have alot of no till farming in this area.
    I just watched a company install drainage in a no till field......everything was done by special mahines and equipment.
    It was awesome to see how it's done !!! but no matter what farming is nonstop hard work !!
