Tobacco growing

2015  Lesson learned grow what you enjoy.  Tobacco test, grows great but did not dry in the open Iowa barn conditions.  Needs a drying environment that is more controlled.  Harvesting the tobacco was labor intensive and although fun to grow however, their was no benefit as we do not smoke.
