Re: tobacco mosaic virus

At the CCG, we ask folks who do smoke to please wash their hands before 
gardening and not smoke when they are near people's tomato plants.  

It's a common sense gardening practice, and we've found that when we ask 
smokers nicely, they comply graciously. 

I know that we've had discussions about smoking in the garden before, but I 
know that by having a cigarette butt can in the grape arbor has reduced the 
amount of cigarette butts around the garden and has reduced another possible 
friction point among our 4,000 garden keyholders. 

Best wishes,
Adam Honigman

 I would be interested in knowing the seed-saving publications that
 suggest using tobacco.    In a quick Internet search I found a lot of
 literature on saving tobacco seeds, but I did not find any on using
 tobacco as a means of seed safekeeping.  T.M.V is really quite strong,
 has a long life span and can be transmitted through tobacco products.
 Once it infects a plant through an open sore (like an aphid bite) it can
 spread and hide for sometime.  
 Check out www.extension.umn.edu/distribution/horticulture/DG1168.html
 for information on TMV and its results and
 http://community.webshots.com/photo/2667681/2679474bkWQckpIpo for a
 photo of tobacco bloom.
 I don't believe it would be okay to grow Tobacco plants in the garden
 without increasing the risk of TMV invasion.
