Cecee's Adventure - Day 30

After walking for about fifteen minutes. we reached the fields where we were destined to spend many hours that summer so long ago.

We discovered many rows of plants covered with buds beginning to show white at the tips.

":Here are the cotton plants where we will be getting rid of the weeds that have sprung up between them."" Robert informed us with a smile. "Don't leave any, not even a tiny one."

"How are we supposed to get the weeds out, anyway?"   This came from Eugene.

"You'll be pulling them by hand, of course."

"Without any thing on our hands?" i inquired.

"Oh, don't worry! They'll toughen up after a few days!" Robert said, with a smile.

'Where do we put the weeds?" Arthur piped up.

"Just put them in a pile, we'll burn them later, after they dry out." This again from Robert.

We began our job of pulling weeds.

"Now, get hold of the plant near the ground, like this, and you'll have an easier time of it." instructed Robert,  demonstrating the action."
