there is a monument for a boll weevil in Enterprise, Alabama. The only monument anywhere for an agricultural pest.
What an unusual subject for a monument. The weevil must have made quite an impact on folks’ lives. Nice drawing and good to see you back, Joeseph
Great stuff Joseph. Beautiful composition.
Bob, the boll weevil destroyed the cotton crops but encouraged farmers to try growing another crop (peanuts) which lifted the economy of the area, back around 1919. Glad to be back, thanks for the comments Bob and Alessandro!
That’s really interesting, Joseph. Some good coming from adversity. Lots of folk must owe their fortune to a tiny bug. Didn’t President Carter grow peanuts?
In the neighboring state of Georgia.
