When cotton is 3 or 4 weeks old, the rows of closely spaced plants are chopped out with hoes, leaving them divided into small clumps separated by hoe-width spaces. This work must be done within a certain period of time and generally every member of the family helps out. In this scene, an owner does one row while his three children do another. On May 28 - June 1, 1941 in Harmony Community, Putnam County, GA.
