I installed a yardstick among my tobacco plants yesterday so I can track their growth. If I haven't updated you on the project, the plants were put in the well-prepared ground last week.
If I recall correctly, my previous crop got to about 3' tall. Taller, maybe? In any case, I thrust a stiff rod into the soil and zip-tied the yardstick to that, making sure the bottom of the yardstick was just barely touching the ground. From the photo above, my tobacco plants are about 12" tall now.
These are Virginians, of which I have a dozen. Off-camera are nine Tennesseans.

... which is just what I expected.
Several days into my cayenne fermentation experiment, the peppers in the brine solution are fermenting so fast that the container is overflowing and the bubbles are bubbling. The salted mash is just sitting there like the degenerate loser that it is.

On the right, there is naught but sloth and degradation. Sad!
