Life on the Farm: The Cotton Pile

I haven’t posted about farm life for a while, so I’m going to start a series about places on our farm! Today we will be touring the lovely cotton pile. XD We don’t play there much anymore (maybe we wore it out when we were little), but when company or visitors come over, they love it!

So what exactly is this cotton pile? It’s (sadly) not a heap of fluzzy cotton wool, it’s just the cotton seeds. But they are still quite soft with leftover cotton fuzz. Why do we have a huge pile of cotton seeds in our barn, you ask? Actually, it’s for cow feed. Blech! I don’t think they would taste especially good, but the cows seem to think so. XD

Here are some pictures I took when our friend Mallory came over:

Cotton seed is good for digging holes or covering people up. 😀

In the olden days the cotton filled most of two big barn rooms! But sadly, there isn’t that much any more. *Sniff* 😛

I hope you enjoyed this rather short post! We had a super fun time tonight which you will hear about later – do not fear. XD


P. S. My friend Mallory has two blogs you should really check out! The first is a cute one where her bunny “writes” the posts, and the second is a pretty lifestyle/photography blog. Click away, my friends!

  1. That’s a BIG pile of cotton seeds! I bet it’s really fun to play in. 🙂 We live in the country, but we don’t have anything like that!



    1. It really IS! 😀 Well, they’re not squishy soft – the seed part is kind of hard – but they’re covered in soft fuzz. It’s a little bit like sand to play in, but with bigger, fuzzier grains. 🙂


  2. That looks so fun! I wonder if my mom would object to having a huge cotton seed pile in the living room . . . 🙂


  3. Ooh cool! 😀 🙂 😛 That looks like fun! 😛 Is it at all itchy!? It looks itchy! XD Hehe!!!! 😛 I like to play on our hay bales sometimes! 🙂 😀


    1. Yeah, it is fun! Nope, it’s not really that itchy, but usually you get some dust up your nose. XD Never, ever wear flannel or fuzzy clothing to the cotton pile because it will get covered in cotton fuzz!

      1. 😀 😛 Haha!! xD XD Yes, I know what it’s like to get covered in fuzz with flannel pants, believe me: WE HAVE AUSTRALIAN SHEPHERDS!!!!!! XD They are SO …SHEDDY!!!!! 😛 XD Hehe!!!! At least Guiney… plus her hairs are white or gray, so they’re easy to see!! 😛 And her hair sticks to EVERYTHING!!! 😛 ha!


  4. Great piece! I haven’t thought about those days with my sister, cousins, friends playing in and around the farm. Jumping hay bale to hay bale was the best.
