Cotton

My friend Maria came up with the idea that we should try to grow cotton plants in the urban garden next to our building. I was really enthusiastic! We planed to grow the plants, harvest the cotton, spin it and weave a little piece of cotton. She ordered organic seeds from the States (unfortunately, you cannot find anywhere in Europe non-GMO cotton seeds) and she planted some of them this spring. They germinated and the little plants thrived on our windowsill for a while. She moved them outside and some of them continued growing. One of the plants have flowers now. Definitely, we won’t be able to make our own piece of cotton this year :), but the flower is really pretty. img_0973img_0981img_1001img_4448img_4452img_4455img_4457
