Growing tobacco is hard work. It’s harder than growing i.e. corn, potatoes or grain. That’s because the farmer has to prepare his patch first with the plough and saw the seeds. But, he also has to go in his patch every day to cut the blossoms and pick unwanted leaves. It reminded me to the wine growers work.
Everything is done by manual work. Ploughs and carriages are pulled by oxen. We didn’t see any machine in the fields.
