Will there be cotton?

Last cold and rainy Summer was not the best time to move from edible gardening to wearable gardening but by September last , the cotton did bloom. It didn’t have time enough time to set  cotton though.

This year in  early April I sowed Nankeen, Erlene’s Green,and Red Foliated cotton seeds on my window sill. Being a particularly sunny Spring the plants were fairly robust when I set them outside in mid May. Today I had the first cotton flower open! Could that that home-grown hand twisted q-tip be that far behind?
