Single-bottom Plow




Photo taken about 2005


This old single-bottom plow is used to “break ground” for planting crops.  It was pulled by a single horse or a pair of horses and was guided by a man holding onto the handles.  The front wheel prevented the plow from digging too deeply into the ground.  Problems could arise if the plow discovered a hidden rock or tree root.
