I grew tobacco as a cash crop for many a years As of now I do not have what the gobbermint needs to grow tobacco (with in the law) ... lolBet you don't grow tobacco yet....
I think that would make a wonderful barter item.
Out of curiosity, what does one need to be able to grow it? What are the regulations?I grew tobacco as a cash crop for many a years As of now I do not have what the gobbermint needs to grow tobacco (with in the law) ... lol
So ... alright I do not grow tobacco ... And you are right IF I did grow it, that would be a wonderful barter item.
I can only speak for what I needed in N.C. which I grew my cash crop. In N.C. I had a tobacco allotment (40 acres) ... which said I could grow X amount of tobacco within one year. No more or no less ... lolOut of curiosity, what does one need to be able to grow it? What are the regulations?
... lolOk, I was just reading on the cotton seeds and it says that 10 seeds (Brown or green for $6.99) yields 1 pound of cotton. What can you do with just 1 pound of cotton?? It seems like you would need at least 5 pounds or more to really make much?? Can you even make a pair of socks with four 4oz balls of cotton yarn??
I don't know ... now a days the FDA has raid squads and put you in jail for that little tax thing ...Who listens to the FDA?
They just don't want to loose any tax money. Keeping it under the table is the way to go.
On the topic of cotton... You could make a wash cloth? I didn't realize cotton was that expensive. Must be because of the color.
