So, if my garden freezes out etc, will you be my back up plan?
I need approx 45lbs for a year.
I would appreciate it, as its always nice to have a back up plan:)
Sure. Wouldn't mind it a bit.
Thanks for the link! That was very helpful. While I am planning on growing my own, I have several friends who recently converted to RYO, and most of them don't have the land, or the time to grow and process their own.
I was wondering if any of the farms around here were interested in doing a package deal where you could lease a plot, and they would sell you seeds, maintenance, and drying/curing facilities/assistance. But I'm too disorganized to do anything about that!
Be careful! You can't even give away tobacco without owing the tax on it! As I recall, the tax applies to anyone who sells, trades, barters or makes a gift of tobacco products.
I seriously doubt the government is going to knock down my door for giving away some tobacco products to friends and family. I would never walk around mindlessly giving tobacco to folks. As a matter of fact, a guy who works down at the local police department has asking me for quite a while to send him a bag of tobacco.
Alex. I suggest growing tobacco all the time to folks, however, not many have the patience, land, or time to grow it unfortunately. Better they get whole leaf tobacco off others, for cheap than to let the government vacuum their wallets clean.
