Just curious if there are any tobacco growers here. I have not yet tried it, as I am not much of a smoker, but thought it would be a fun project, and could be a GREAT barter item in the future. I'm quite late starting this spring, so I will likely try it in containers that I can bring in, or do a full indoor grow. The strain is called "Russian Red" from here ....

I have plenty of seed for next season though.
