Hey Everyone,

I just wanted to say to all of you who were not able to come to yesterdays Pilgrim Wedding at Plimoth Plantation’s 1627 English Village it was very cool and we had fun with it.  They reacted a 17th century Pilgrim Wedding and me and keeri invited  but not as kerri and Tim but our 17th centay Wampanoag charactours we play when we are in the village.  We spoke broken English and some Wampanoag too.  I do think things got started early low so I did not see the entire ceremony but what I did see was cool.  It look like there were lots of visitor’s around enjoying them self too. Here are some pictures of the celebration afterwards Enjoy.

My Tobacco Baby’s Grounded

June 22nd, 2009 by Tim

Hey everyone,

Just wanted to give you a update on our tobacco.  On last Tuesday (6/16/09  me, Phillip and bob stayed after work and put all the  tobacco baby’s in the ground.  The tobacco we plant is very old, all tobacco originally came from North America and was brought to Europe as a novelty.  There is six different varieties of tobacco.  The tobacco we grow today in Virginia that go’s in cigarettes today is called tabackem.  The tobacco we grow in the home site is called rustica.  They looked very happy after we water them and gave them some squanto’s secrete (liquid fish fertilizer) they love that stuff.  It took us two hours to get them all in the ground.   We give the tobacco to Native guests that visit the museum I will post some pictures now of it.
