Thanks Kirk it's funny you say that, the wife asked me if we were going to have to plow more land next year, I said (jokingly) no, we can lease someones field and grow it there, her eyes about popped out of her head cause she thought I was serious...LOL

Can't say as I blame her Harry, a hell of a worry keeping fields of baccy safe from pests, not to mention opportunist people stealing your crop, tempting though eh Harry. Smile

Heh. Very Happy

You can at least look into building a small, metal shed or some structure to start doing flue-curing or something. Twisted Evil

I know if I ever get some plants going here, I'm going to have to fight the high-altitude, murderous sun and lack of humidity. I almost think greenhouse winter-growing would work out better. Provided the neighbors don't call the DEA thinking I'm sharecropping pot...not kidding about that. Friend of mine was growing hops for home brewing and ghost chile pepper plants (for hot sauce) and the neighbor phoned in that he had a marijuana operation...she could "smell the pot, and was very worried about her children." Eight local agents came knocking on the door with vests on, guns drawn...he let them inside. After everyone had a good laugh at the misunderstanding, I think two of the agents came over after shift and were sampling his beer he had just bottled. Laughing

Life's funny sometimes.

Cool

what went thru her head was ".... let's see, $15k for a tractor, another $10 to $20k for a harvester, another $ 10k for a curing trailer, then wages for labor...."  Twisted Evil Twisted Evil
