- Grant ,Alabama
Yesterday I drove up to Hohenwald TN to help my long time friend do some work on his moms house in order to sell it soon. As I was driving home , I had google maps going and somehow I ended up tooling around the TN countryside .Somewhere between the Natchez Trace Parkway and 64 bypass ,I come to a sweeping curve and I see a beautiful stand of mature tobacco at least an acre . I believe it might have been Burley but going by at almost 6 pm I was unsure. It was standing a good 5 - 6 ft tall and just huge yellowed 16 inch wide by nearly 4 ft long leaves. I have to say ,I miss growing tobacco and I will get back to it. It just has a beauty like no other plant I know.
