Winter is the time for tallying up.
For comparing notes, for looking to see what you want to order for next year. For some it is the time of preparing the soil, killing off bugs and diseases in preparation for next season.
It will be a time to sit around the fire, and relax and remember the past years, and go over the posts and see what you missed.
It is a time for planning, looking to the future. It is the time to build that kiln that you wanted, but didn't have time for while tending the tobacco. Or planning that tobacco cutter, or blocker, or some other gear, in preparation for next year.
For some who grew in pots or flotation beds, it will be a time to sterilize, clean, and fine tune your systems. Lots to do in the winter!

Well Roy is still debating the idea of putting up that survial forum. Then you also have the few tropical and southern hems who will continue to seek advice. You'll also have your folks who come on looking to grow thier crops inside and the general board discusing thier techniques on curing, processing, end results. Before you know february will have rolled around folks will be preparing to start up during the late winter early spring months. All and all I honestly don't think there will be a huge lack in discussions here. When I joined there were days nobody would post; it's never going to be like that again.

I think we will be talking about curing chambers and shredders and rolling cigars and making dip and blending pipe and cigarette tobacco.
