The flowers are producing a small but constant supply of floral smokes. I hope many more will mature before the season ends. So far I only have a couple of leaves started on the way to smokability but there are a good few nearly ready and I might get a decent crop this year after all.
Nowhere near as good as last year but then I lost half of last year’s to mould, so I might actually end up with more baccy this year from fewer, shorter plants.
This year I will try Junican’s towel method (I will use paper towels because I can’t spare enough real ones) and follow Rose’s tip of not letting the leaves hang in the cool of the night. That just encourages moulds.
I won’t get a full year’s supply this time, it’ll be a while yet before I reach that stage, but every leaf that reaches smokability is at least ten cigarettes the useless wasters don’t get to tax.
The less tax they have, the less hate they can pour on me.
I really need to corrupt that MC Hammer song, don’t I? (You can’t smoke here). However, I will never be seen in those ridiculous trousers.
