The plants with yellow coloration (above photos) are burley tobacco. I am not sure what type of tobacco plants are in the photo below. Farmers grow a lot of dark tobacco here, but I wonder if this is another type because dark tobacco is usually a deeper green than these plants are. Nor do these plants exhibit the yellow splotchiness that's typical of burley tobacco.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
