This afternoon we left to do a bit of touring. We decided to visit a winery, and the only one open on a Monday was Friday's Creek, up in Northern Calvert County. However, on the way we stumbled upon one of the only working tobacco farms left in Southern Maryland:
A field of tobacco, with the tobacco cut and staked and ready to hang in the tobacco barn.
Tobacco was the main reason that Maryland was settled back in the colonial era, when the British first became addicted to it. It was an important crop until fairly recently, when the state started a buyout program to discourage it.
