#Praydirt Members Cotton Growing Challenge! 

We will grant an award for a #TXHighPlains & #TXHillCountry members who share their cotton farming journey with us. Simply post your photos &/or videos on socials by tagging us and by using our #FarmhouseVineyards hashtag.  

In your Q2 Wine Club, we have shared with you a variety of Cotton called "Upland Cotton Seed" 


Cotton Planting Instructions For Your Garden: 
  • Start with freshly cultivated soil.
  • Cotton should be planted in direct sunlight. Sow seeds approximately 1.5 to 2 inches deep and 3 to 6 inches apart.
  • Cover with soil, space your rows of seeds 30 to 40 inches apart.
  • Keep the soil moist, but not excessively wet for the remainder of the growing season.
  • Maintain your garden bed of cotton by lightly hoeing the soil just below the surface to aerate the soil and remove weeds. 
  • Cotton will be hand harvested when the bolls open up and expose the fluffy cotton.  
  • Use to decorate in your home and share pictures of how your cotton crop is doing. 

💡Fun Fact about Upland Cotton: It is a shorter-medium staple fiber and has many uses, but our favorite. It is the type used to make denim jeans!
