    Holland's Hope is a marijuana variety. They were in the pot first. But quite fitting that Amersfoort is the only Dutch variety we have to our availability and given that it is the only place we'll be growing it in the Netherlands this year.

    During the late 18th Century in the US, John Chapman ("Johnny Appleseed") spread the cultivation of apples throughout the new nation, its territories, and into Ontario.

    Tutu, in the early 21st Century, spread Dutch Amersfoort tobacco across the globe!

    Re: Tutu's Year 2017

    Previously I had done some transplanting into small pots at my grandfather's farm. I had left him a few seedlings which didn't grow that well. Not as good as those my mom and my friend in Utrecht were keeping. This farm is only two towns away from Amerongen, the last growing region of this tobacco. The seeds come from a little museum in Amerongen. So I decided I had to pick the largest seedling and plant it.

    Last year my grandfather had a few Amersfoort plants growing at his place. One of the guys who regularly does some work on the farm told me that he had saved seed from last years plants and germinated it at home very early this year. Says he's got plants of about 50 cm high. So now I know of two people growing Amersfoort in the Netherlands this year.

    Here are some shots from today.

    That's a fun idea to plant tobacco in suspended pot

    So I've been in the Dominican Republic for about two weeks, working with tobacco every day.
    Then I saw this plant growing very near to my apartment. I got some seeds and I took a picture.

    This one post (http://fairtradetobacco.com/threads/...ll=1#post15139) displays photos of a number of Dominican cigar varieties, for comparison. My first guess would be Olor.

    There is a lot of Olor grown in fields in this area so chances are that is indeed Dominican Olor

    Re: Tutu's Year 2017

    Came back to Indonesia today. Although no tobacco was growing in my yard, there were two plants growing in front of the office.
    One had been a mystery appearance all along. The other I had planted there myself when I left.
    I had a Xanthi growing from seeds received from down under.
    It was a small plan when I left, had not harvested any leafs, and I didn't want to throw it away.
    So I had removed it from the yard and placed it in front of the office.
    Both plants have grown to large sizes, with various stalks.
    I've harvested some of the Xanthi.
    They're going to be sun cured.
    I went around in the area today as well and shot two pictures with my phone.
