I have been reading this site for a few seasons now and even registered some months ago, but am now finally making my first post.
My name is Tom and I am from Sacramento, Ca. I was born and raised here. I have been a gardener and amateur horticulturist my entire life and took up pipe smoking as a hobby when I was 20. I am now getting into growing and producing the bulk of my own food and also my own pipe tobaccos. I don't smoke every day, but only when I can really sit down outdoors - I have a three-year-old - and really enjoy the smoke. I'm hoping I can grow and produce my own and maybe get further satisfaction from that endeavor.
I look forward to being able to learn from this community and hopefully I will be able to contribute to the knowledge of others as I move along. As such, I will be plaguing you with questions!
