Fall is Coming

One of the sure signs of fall coming is tobacco hanging in the barns. I delivered a quilt for one of our kid's I stitched for Monday in Cross Plains and came home on Hwy 25 and Hwy 49.

no fire in this barn

tobacco being fired in these next 3 barns -- I don't smoke and never have but I sure enjoy driving by and taking a whiff

some only show little smoke while others

show a lot of smoke

doesn't matter if there is a little smoke or a lot the smell is wonderful and signals the arrival of fall



  1. Hi Sandy,
    Now this is something I would love to experience at least once in my life. I don't smoke either but I would like to know what this would smell like and see the barns smoking.
    I love all the pictures you shared so much.

  2. Love Jennifer's work. She is coming right
    along. Her work is beautiful also.

    The tobacco barns sure take me back a lot
    of years. I remember the barn just across
    the highway from our driveway and every
    fall they fired the tobacco there.
