I went to an area of cotton farms around Taft Texas today. Cotton has been king on the coastal plains for years. Robstown High School sports teams have been called the cotton pickers for as long as I can remember. So I wasn't surprised to see lots of the fluffy white stuff. The reason I came to the area though was to check out a new kind of farming...wind farming. The wind farm is booming and I think it's about the coolest thing I've seen around here for years.
