    From seed to Swedish snus, harvest and curing the tobacco

    This has gotten long overdue, but I finally managed to put together a video and a post at creatinker.com from the harvest and curing of my tobacco. I have not made any snus from the tobacco, but tobacco is like wine, it gets better with age. I have read that Swedish Match stores their tobacco for five years before using it.
    After a warm and sunny season with a good amount of rain, it's time to harvest and cure the tobacco. A new thing I'm trying for the first time is to cure the tobacco outside only sheltered from the rain. This has prevented most of the tobacco to dry in a green state. If it got dry during the day, the higher humidity during the night and the morning dew made it moist and supple again during the night.

      Thank you, yes it's rewarding. I took down the last drying leaves this week and weighed them. In total 3500 g (7.7 lb). Not optimal for over 90 plants, but I aim to improve on that this season. Better location and better soil are on my todo-list.
