Community Keeps Me Up-to-Speed on Cotton During My Vacation

Community Keeps Me Up-to-Speed on Cotton During My Vacation

I hear some people have unnatural fears of unplugging while they are on vacation. They are so afraid they will miss something. During my week-long vacation to Israel, I rarely checked work email and felt no real responsibility to check in otherwise but occasionally took a few minutes during a long, quiet bus ride to check in thanks to the driver Saher turning his iPhone into a hotspot.

Arkansas Cotton Harvest October 2010 — Friend’s Photo from Marshall Sigsby

Appreciate Marshall Sigsby giving me & another cotton tweep down our way — Jeremy Bullington from the University of Arkansas Extension Service a couple of harvest time shout outs. Seems like years ago we finished harvest — in record time I am happy to say! The photo below is of photo below is a beautiful field near Rector, Arkansas.

Starting a New Series — Friend’s Photo — First One is from Amanda Sollman

One of the great things about the awesome network of online friends I have is that occasionally, out of nowhere, I get a photo tweeted or Facebooked to me just because it makes them think about me and/or agriculture. I realize I’ve lost track of the bulk of these photos that clearly show the presence of  agriculture in our daily lives.

My Job is a Farm By-Product (the t-shirt)

My Job is a Farm By-Product (the t-shirt)

It’s Friday night and I’m listening to the rain come down.  So nice to be home.  I put my feet up & decided to catch up on what’s been going on in the digital week.  I saw a tweet from a farmer I talk to a good bit — “Waiter at Famous Daves has T-shirt that says ‘my job is a pork by-product’” — I LOVED IT!  And I had to send it along with a note from me —…
