Have just been doing some catching up on my reading, congrats on the new place.I began this thread on Sunday with the premise that I didn't know where I would be planting these tobacco plants.
Three weeks ago, a couple put in a bid, just hours before us, on a home we were interested in. On Monday, they backed out due to newly found job insecurity. I feel sorry for them and hope all is well, but this gave us the opportunity to re-present our offer, which was accepted. I held off celebrating until now because I just got confirmation from the lender.
So I will be planting in my own back yard this year! It may require a lot of work. The yard is on a steep slope which faces ESE. The slope will be a whole new ball game, and hopefully produce excellent results because the ground temperature will be higher than in a flat garden which is an issue in my climate.
So this will be a real grow blog this year!
Edit: here's a view of the back yard. I plan on taking out a couple trees.
The single Rindi that germinated died. The Delhi is trying to escape the pots, and the others are doing ok. I have two more weeks to get them in the ground. But before that, I have a lawn to dig up, a shed to cut up, and a bunch of cedar shrubs and roots to excise.Those plants look extremely healthy. How is your grow coming along now? Mo’ better?
