This charming, 14 minute video, produced by Duke University, demonstrates starting, growing, managing and harvesting tobacco (in this case, bright leaf). It then goes on to explore leaf grading, hand-tying, and ultimately the auctioning of the tobacco. And nice background music.

What a great video....actually, as I was watching it, I felt like I was watching something out of Amish country.....and for the life of me, I would be unable to tell a mule from a horse.....:)
John Dee Holman - I looked him up afterward.....there are loads of his videos on you tube. This is one of him singing the song at the end of the Duke U vid: https://youtu.be/AtzIAC_jbHU

I am shocked to discover that I was the person who posted this. A mere 7 months ago! And I have no recollection of it. Maybe I should watch it.
