    I finished up De-steming my 2011 baccy patch of virginia bright leaf. This pile weight in at 32.46 lbs. This is what I got from 86 plants. I will seal these boxes up good and store it with my other 4 years of accumulation. Other than what I have smoked and given away, it's all in storage.
    I enjoy growing it, but the main reason I try to grow a little, is, sometimes I can imagine a time when tobacco may not be easily available and if it is, I may not be able to afford to buy it. So, If that day ever comes, I'll Be Ready... Ill Be Smok'en... Jeebs...

    You thought about pressing it into cakes?

    It'd cut down on storage....

    Nice work! We seem to be heading in the no or sky high priced leaf sales!

    Yea, I will let this age for a year, and then I will put a casing on it, then I will press... You are rite.. When you see the prices of Tobacco across the pond, you just know that they will be here. I have noticed a few online tobacco retailers in the US are getting a jump start on increased prices. I Refuse to buy from them anymore... that's jus me...Jeebs...

    Not yet, but they are a beautiful, rich brown now. I've got to clear some space, now that I unloaded a bunch of tools out of storage into my garage.
