    Wondering if any of you are cutting tobacco were you live. Some started here about 3 weeks ago, then the rain came, now folks are trying to cut between showers. Glad I'm not trying to shed any of that stuff, too cold and wet to sweat it much.

    does anyone have tobacco left to cut? when i sold my place that had an allotment, they had cut it so far down, the new owners didn't even bother to put it in their name.

    They've been cutting it here for the past month. Certain areas of the county I live in where they grow a lot of it, it's up in the barns smoking away. Smells so good on a cool morning.

    They've been priming around here for the last three or four weeks. I saw the crew one morning in full oilskins - cool nights, lots of dew.
