    I used to set in front of a computer all day. But I've reformed. Now I only set in front of computer when I want to. Big difference!

    Now I like to set under a shade tree and watch my tobacco grow. Very relaxing.

    And they say size doesn’t matter. This is a Little Dutch that fell over today from all the rain we’ve had. It’s over 6’ tall. I thought this was supposed to be a dwarf variety!?

    Well, if you hang the body upside down, his its arms dangling, that's maybe not an accurate measure of height. 3' plant + 36" leaf = 3' plant height. Does that thing have branches?

    But it does look impressive hanging there. If the plants that I intend to stalk harvest start getting too tall for my 7' high shed, I have to prime the lower leaves, then cut the stalk at that higher level.

    I refuse to let facts and/or reality interfere with my weird sense of humor!

    For example, my Little Dutch vs Levi’s

    Seriously though, I think I got my seedling in the ground a good 6 weeks ahead of you Levi. You’ll be surprised how much they will take off all of a sudden when they reach a certain size. It’s like they double overnight.

    That’s hilarious and a good sense of humor is a must have in these crazy times! My Little Dutch is the only variety not showing signs of ripening other than the Semois. I hope they hit a growth spurt soon.

    All my primed leaf has now fully color cured. It's time to start fermenting / kilning them while the rest finishes curing on the stalk. As we are in full Texas summer mode (100F+ degree days) I plan on putting the leaf in the attic as a pre-built kiln Daytime temps should be around 130-140F during the day. My only hold up is in finding some bags to put the leaf in to maintain proper humidity during the fermentation process. Any suggestions?

    Also, I found this little cutie munching on one of my Little Dutch. I will spare you the gory details of his ultimate demise. (Spoiler! His a** got stomped into the ground!)
