I Needn't Have Worried

When I started my tobacco-growing experiment, I figured the plants would get about 75% to full-grown and then stall out because I was so late in the year. Cold weather and the lack of sun would stunt their growth.

I was wrong.

The biggest are now a full 6' tall and the others aren't far behind.

The plants are also blooming.

I harvested one leaf which was yellow and ready to go, a Tennessee varietal, and have hung it up to dry in my garage. Results to follow.

So, how do you test tobacco? Are you going to smoke it, or chew it, or give it to one of your tobacco-smoking friends?

Wow, tobacco plants are rather pretty.
