Picked some mud lugs today.
From top to bottom ytb, vg and big gem.
Small plants with small leaves. I'll have to do something different next year to shield them from the harsh wind and cold weather. Maybe a polytunnel or something. But at least they are growing. I am starting to believe that this is about as far north you can grow tobacco without a greenhouse. But then again, this summer was especially harsh. People are struggling with even the potatoes.

Hung the burley in our "naust", boathouse I belive would be the best translation. It's a small building where we keep our fishing nets, longlines and etc fishing equipment. To much smelly chicken dust in the barn. We also dry our onions in the naust.

I haven't had the chance to build my flue cure system yet, but the tobacco is getting mature now. So I have been experimenting with letting them yellow and then dry them fast with a fan heater. Is this a method worth doing or should I just air dry the virginia this year?

If you have any sunshine, sun-curing is preferable to air-curing of flue-cure types. How you cure it will, of course, also depend on your intended use for it (cigarette vs. snus, etc.).

there have been very little sunshine lately, the wettest summer in 100 years where i live. I should probably just set aside a day to build the flue chamber. I have all the parts it's just the time I lack.
