Explaining the procedure I've used
This picture is showing the process the first item on the left is the Cotton Boll
the next item is showing the cotton removed from the boll (there was a little more, but I wanted to have room to show), inside one of the short strip of cotton are 5 seeds that you can feel but not see plainly.. first I separate the seeds
then on the bottom row, you see one seed that I was pulling the cotton away from,
Then you see how much cotton was attached to that seed...sometimes there is more
Then on the right of it you finally see the Seed :o) tiny little bugger, almost looks like an orange seed.
And that my friends is the lesson learned for the day! Some of you already knew it, but for those like me...it's a fascinating experience...
