I’m Back. With Seedlings!


It has been a crazy few weeks! Between travel, photographic gigs and other unexpected turns, I’ve barely had time to smoke, let alone report back. I shot a wedding, four days of muay thai workouts and BMX racing. Now, thankfully, things have settled down a bit, which allows me to return to regular posting.

Meanwhile, one of the more amusing developments is the birth of my tobacco “farm,” displayed in its full glory above. The seeds were a thoughtful gift from my girlfriend, and thanks to her knack for getting anything to grow under any conditions, I now have five varieties of seedlings springing to life. I don’t see myself riding horseback, Litto Gomez-style, through these lush fields anytime soon. But if these do half as well as our habaneros and Thai peppers out back, I’ll someday smoke an “estate grown” robusto. Frankly, I’d be happy to make a couple of cigarettes out of it. (Under-promise, over-deliver!) Stay tuned…

Very cool. Be sure to keep us up to date on this project. I will enjoy following your progress with it.

Hey, Matt. Thanks for stopping by. I’ll certainly keep everyone updated. I’m tickled that they even germinated. Keeping any of them alive will be a monumental upset, but ya never know! - K

Very nice Kevin! Let me know when the “Box Press Special Edition robusto” is ready to sample. I want to be apart of that action. ;-p I’m glad you’re back and I’m looking forward to more of your great reviews and photos.

Hey, Lisa! I’m expecting a yield of about three leaves, so I’m thinking I might squeeze one petit corona out of this. But you never know! :)
