    There are no laws anymore. Once the tobacco buyout took place all restrictions on tobacco were lifted. You can grow as much tobacco as you want. You can also sell unprocessed leaf. If you are in Canada you can only sell within your Province. You could call some local Gov't Ag agencies but they will be a little annoyed at you. If I get time, maybe later in the week I'll dig up the regs and post them... but don't hold your breath.

    So far, this is what I've been able to determine as well, but everything is coming from somewhere like this - a forum or blog post with no sources. No offense meant to you, Baccyman - I do appreciate it and it's comforting to hear the same thing coming from different sites around the Internet; I'd just like to have something a bit more substantial when/if someone starts asking questions.

    And Jeebs - you with your fancy tractor :blah: (jk, I'm just a little jealous of your space and proper tools in all honesty). It's not 5 acres, but the little area we've been tilling (48.5' x 27') with a smallish front-tine is starting to push the poor thing's limit (and possibly mine); it may be time to starting looking into a rear-tine.

    Next step is the most important..
    If the plants are not "sun tolerant" they will die in hot sun..
    If you haven't exposed them to hot sun for a few hours, they will die... Once exposed... they will live forever..and will "love" hot sun.
    I want this to be successful, so be careful of sun exposer. Old 'baccer farmers treat the plants like children...
    Guess I'm and "ole tobacco farmer".... ted

    That's exactly what I do. sit on the front porch with 2 big bags miracle grow potting mix.I save my cups from year to year. I'm not gonna do but about 150 plants...anything over that is to much for me to keep up with. If I had help planting, hoeing grass out and picking... I would do more.

    Ah, you had me worried you had something else growing in your garden :hp2:

    The leaves are definitely more dense than mine were at that size, and I was just looking at pictures of broadleaf - you're going to have your hands full come fall :byg:

    Are you going to do any experimental pipe tobacco with some of the cigar leaf or cigars only?
