    My very basic pipe recommendations are:
    • purchase Lemon Virginia from WLT (so you don't have to flue-cure any leaf)
    • purchase Latakia from WLT (you can't make it, regardless)
    • grow Harrow Velvet (mild burley)
    • grow Prilep 66-9/7 (prolific and rich Oriental)
    • also plan to make Perique and Cavendish from the Harrow Velvet

    Actually, you could start a batch of Perique now, by grabbing a hundred or so leaves of any mix of varieties (doesn't matter much) that have mostly cured on the stalk already. Rip out the green stems, moisten (drench) and smush into a container, then tighten a clamp. Wait 3 months.

    Awesome Bob. That'll work it down to just two or three strains to grow. I'm sure to handle that. Thanks

    This idea has me a bit excited. I do still have standing tobacco in the backyard. I was planning on having the brother in law come over and disc it all under but maybe I'll have him help me pick some first. It doesnt really matter what type of tobacco it is so I can just go for it. Thanks

    GM if your able to go outside and move about, as you say, go for it. Sounds like a nice easy fall project. Your health comes first tho.
