Was just going to post that.  Very interesting. If this years crop was poor, will it affect the cigars for 2020

I think the info for this article was gathered at least a month ago. Yes, the first plantings in Nov were a total bust, but due to that second plantings were readied quickly and the weather has been dry as a bone since Dec. 

Pics are coming back from Festival goers showing some great looking shade-grown at Prieto's. The first primings should be happening the next week or two. 

I'm waiting for solid confirmation, but I'm fairly sure that the 19 crop will be very good. Obviously, things can still go wrong after the leaves are in the barns but assuming things go well, it will have been 3 good to very good final yields in a row which is nothing short of astounding. That's maybe happened once in 30 years.
