Granddaddy's Tobacco Barns

Tobacco was grown in North Carolina when I was a child. These are the old log barns where my grandfather cured his tobacco. It was not uncommon for the barns to be heated by wood or oil. My favorite smell on crisp fall mornings was the smell of tobacco curing. I will never forget the smell of wood smoke combined with the smell of curing tobacco for as long as I live.
