A Full Moon... Now, and Then

Since we are having a full moon experience, I thought I'd share with you another full moon from October, 1978 which was rising over our family farm. I do miss life on that farm. 1978 was the year I went off to college. I must have come home for a visit over a weekend in October. Can you guess what the crop is?

We grew cotton and soybeans. After I left they started growing rice as well. Then this year we had a pretty decent corn harvest. In this particular shot, the cotton had already been picked at least once. What you see is the leftover cotton that the mechanical picker missed on the first pass. When prices are good, they'll pick a 2nd time at least.
