I'm not trying to hijack this thread but one last thing about Larry. If you remember he made a fertilizer soup and manually mixed manure, water and assorted other ingredients for his fertilizer and I never found out how well it worked or if he abandoned it. A lot of people use this site for a tool and then after they have a season or two under their belts will either get a big head and get kicked off or just not return because they got what they needed. The latter is fine because the site is a tool and we all encourage success of the members but it would be nice if some would stop back in from time to time just to catch us up with their success.


JAK, I think I will copy your contraption - Simple is best. My Connecticut Shade leaves got up to 30 inches long and are perfect for cigars. I ended up mixing all of the rest of the tobacco I had left so my filler will be about thirty or forty types of tobacco from various years and of unknown ratios so it should be interesting. I also have to experiment with how long to hydrate my folded whole leaf to keep them from breaking up when unfolded and rolled.

Shihan, crossed wire in the matrix!

The Larry working on his trailer is NOT in Tennessee.
He's a Kentucky grower..

Copy away Shihan! Post your results here if you don't mind :) I want to see how your cigars turn out.

I like your blending method haha whatever it is you put in it'll probably be pretty decent.

Let me know how it goes for you Baylor!

Also I skipped growing this year. Been to busy to grow but been gettin a new tin or two every week or two.
I'll catch up guys. Sorry to disappear for a while.

And I left those cigars I made to "age" and they all molded... Rather disappointing.
