Mart Payne, 5 years old, picks from 10 to 20 pounds a day. His mother said "Mart, he haint old nuff to go to school much, but he kin pick his 20 pounds a day. Mostly 10 to 15 pounds." - In the rural south it was not uncommon on the small farms for the family members to all go to the fields and pick cotton-white or black, you picked.
