Storm: 1 Tobacco: 0 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Just like every other profession, there is a lot of behind the scenes work that is essential to the finished product. Today we had to deal with the aftermath of a windy storm that blew down acres of tobacco. While going down the rows and propping up the plants, they were also "topped". This is when you remove the first couple leaves in order to concentrate the nutrients to the remaining leaves, which will ultimately be the best ones. This is a regular process we do to all the tobacco, however the recovery of fallen plants is not always typical. Not everyday is glamorous, but everything we do is mandatory in order to produce premium tobacco for amazing companies.
