Before I make cigars and pipe tobacco, I have to test how the taste of cigars are (never smoked one). 🙂
So I bought five pieces of different descent; Cuba, Dominicana, Nicaragua, Honduras and Mexico.
I am now in the middle of a restoration of our old outhouse. So far, it looks good.

Virginia Brightleaf are growing well.
When I opened our mailbox today it was a pipe Stanwell from Denmark ( ordered through http://www.Brobergs.se )
.and some samples of a variety tobacco blends from http://www.mellgrens.se
I´m happy now… really happy. 🙂
EDIT: A better pic on the pipe.
The Virginia plants have been moved to some larger pots.
A small test with seeds from:
Prilep (P66-9/7): An oriental tobacco from Macedonia.
Huehuetenango: From Guatemala, a cigar-filler variant.
Semois: Belgian burley
I have sown the first seeds ” Nicotiana rustica,” I am waiting with the Virginia a couple of weeks.
It takes a couple of months before we are “frost safe” here in the middle of Sweden.
Hi, I have bought a few different types of seeds of tobacco;
Nicotiana rustica and Virginia (Nicotiana tabacum) and a few more varieties are on order.
During the year I will hopefully harvest, dry, ferment and shred self-made pipe tobacco (maybe I do a few flakes too).
If you want, you can follow my adventures in this project here on the blog.
The seeds are very tiny, here are Nicotiana rustica with long shadows
