This video is captured in 2010 at G├╝ney/Denizli where Izmir strains are widely grown. Contains harvesting and drying, also can be considered as a short documentary about a family growing tobaccos and their life in harvest time in their farm house.

Edit: The second folksong in this video is a Turkish-Greek shared song.

Great video, I !

SO much different from here !

..I really hate the small leaf!
(I just sent an email to a friend and invited them to come over and harvest a bunch of the second growth leaf, if they wish.)

..I harvest myself, only. I might get a Bud with some leftover chips in a bag, when I get to take a break! lol

..Whew! Child labor laws. Very serious here.
I got a nic buzz from this morning's harvesting and if a child were seen doing such a thing there would be police here!
Seriously.

It's wild how small those leaves are. I'm growing Black Sea Samsun, and only being in the ground for a month, their leaves are already almost twice that size. I've been led to believe they would be very similar strains to these. Maybe it's more to do with climate and nutrients.
