    The tobacco crop in the Carolina piedmont has feathered and, in many places, been primed. It's looking like a good year so far.

    Wow! Those look nice! Looks like they're ready to be topped. Pure pleasure on the vine (stalk), lol.

    Brings to mind a summer of pulling tobacco, down in Carolina, as a teenager. Hardwork but good.

    Good hard work if you own the field; just hard if someone else does. ;)

    No, I was helping out a farmer who was having a hard year. He was a member of my brothers church. It was worth it, to me, for the experience. I come from a long line of tobacco farmers and mine is the first generation, since the 1840's, NOT to raise tobacco.
    My brother and I are the black sheep of the family. He did four years in the Marines got out and became a preacher. I went in the Army liked it, stayed in for 12 years, got out and went to college. LOL

    I see a lot of that each weekend on my bike rides. I'll have to take a camera this weekend and snap some eastern NC crops!

    I'll start on cotton and sweet potatoes later on. Face it - soybean pictures are just plain boring.
