• Dear Guest,

    We've been using a forum format called vBulletin for over seven years and the program is no longer being developed, so that means no more updates or security patches. vBulletin has never been compatible with search engine optimization and it does not support the multitude of various devices most people use to access the internet, so it's time to say goodbye to vBulletin.

    For these reasons we have moved our forum to a new format that will support and encourage growth for the next generation of grower and DIY tobacco users.

    So please post any issues you're having with using the new site.

    As usual, you may login with your old password.

Some of the pieces are clear, like wings, and they are hard to see mixed in with seed. Other parts look like seed pieces, but are softer. I guess those are body parts. I get a lot of seed pieces and immature seed blown out too.

I got behind on aphid killing this past year and my seed pods are covered in the damn things. I never took the seed bag back off just to kill the aphids with soap water. I'm going to try a generic Admire this year to kill aphids. I get infested with the things.

If you dont want to buy the screens just take the dryed seed heads and give them a squeeze in the upright position and turn them over and pour into a bag for a hundred per pod or whatever. ....No muss no fuss. Mature pods only best for purely personal use.

Just to add my 2 cents. One year on the shade farm we collected a dozen plastic 5 gallon buckets of seed--enough to grow Conn shade to the moon I guess--snap close lids--cool dry place like winter maintenance garage. This was from 2004 crop, resistance to TMV under 85 degrees. It is still being planted in Massachusetts.
