historical cotton tour and marigold dye flower pick-your-own

50.00

Tour the historical Extra Long Staple cotton collection that I have been growing for breeding purposes- (G. barbadense). Beginning with Sea Island cotton seed lines and ending with modern Pima cottons; travel through time and space from the 1860's to the 1990's. From the Southeastern US seaboard to the Southwestern US arid deserts via Egypt. From hand pickable tropical cottons to machine pickable varieties that can grow in the hardly irrigated desert. Then pick your own marigolds and black walnuts to take home and use for your natural dye projects. Tour lasts approximately 40 minutes (wear comfortable walking shoes, bring hats and water) and of course bring bags to put your flowers and walnut hulls in. Cancellations due to weather or not enough people signed up only will be refunded. Note the proper Sea Island cottons do not have open bolls until December. Tours in September and early October will see plants that are still flowering, and the temperatures are often in the '90's by the afternoon. Be sure to check the weather so that you can dress appropriately. More dates and times will be added if these tours fill up.
