    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
