Photo Of The Week: Flowering Tobacco

Blogged

Blooming tobacco in an Eastern North Carolina farm field.  Tobacco isn’t what it used to be in North Carolina but it is still very much in evidence.   This was a small patch or allotment on a small farm near the coast.  The flowers will be removed; “topped” is the word used in the field.   It allows the plant to fill out and mature. Leaves are harvested from the bottom up.  Thanks for the look and have a good week ahead.
