Oxford Tobacco Farm
This is one of the tobacco farms still remaining in our town. These farmers alternate years for growing tobacco, and t2010 is their year to grow the cash crop. The plants were put out several weeks ago, and aleady they're calf-high.
Wonderful high-cloud skies have also graced the weekend and much sun. This week, though, we're in for bouts of rain so it was good to get some gardening chores done while I could.
I'm dashing to work shortly. Rain is falling, and we've two vans filled with guests for a trip to Tryon Palace gardens and grounds (the first governor's mansion in NC). I hope by the time I get to work, the rain will be done for the day ...
If the trip is on, I'll be gone all day -- I'll try to catch up tomorrow.
Have a great one!
