Cultivating Potatoes

Hot and humid weather persisted throughout the day, the horses were employed to cultivate potatoes in preparation for the first hilling on these particular plants. The cultivator was recently donated by David Rogers from East Craftsbury; this is a McCormick-Deering Big 4 circa early 1900's. If you watch closely, you will see Mike work the foot treadle to adjust the crop shield while underway avoiding plants.
