Tobacco Shoots Up Fast

I'm estimating that my crop is growing a bit more than 1/2" per day. The biggest ones are now 3 1/2 feet tall. The leaves are massive, too.

We've had a Santa Ana recently, which means the air is hot and dry. The tobacco didn't take kindly to that and some of the leaves burned and withered. Not to worry, there are tons of them that didn't get damaged. I learned the hard way that on dry days, I need to check the plants and water them by hand if they start to wilt.

Are you going to make tobacco? [OK I know, they are already tobacco but you know what I mean.] Or do you have some other reason for growing them? I guess it's as relaxing sitting watching them grow as it is smoking them!
