ASK A QUESTION Los Algodones

It means the cottons, but there is an expression "vivir entre los algodones" that means to be spoiled and overprotected.
Growing up in the cotton fields of New Mexico, I think it means "the cotton bolls" which is what you call the raw cotton when the boll bursts to release seed, the stage at which you pick it. Is there a history of cotton farming in Los Algodones'
