On a whim, I ordered 2 types of seeds this winter.  Planted them in a flat (the seeds are tiny specks).  Grew them in the bathroom under a light.  Then transplanted into my garden when the weather warmed.

They are getting huge.  Quite pretty!

I don't know what to do with them next.  I usually work things out as the time comes so I will search instructions for cutting and drying later in the summer.

I've heard that its the curing process thats the key.

Is it the same as biofuels where you can voluntarily pay the tax on consumption?

With the price of tobacco I am surprised that there isnt alot more growing going on - I dont like smoking this chinese stuff with all the lead in - although its a pretty good smoke. But then I do use menthol filters so anything will smoke the same.

Mine are flowering now.  I don't know what to do next.  I need to spend some time researching.  I have dial-up so my download time is agonizingly long!!

Hang them about 1" apart on a bamboo cane and hang from the roof in garage or shed (dark and airy) for betweem 3 months to 2 years depending on what you want then cut for preferred smoking method
