"There was what they called a gang plow. You had two bottoms on that, and you had three wheels on that, and then you had a seat on that. And you put four horses on that. Then you had a trip on it where you pushed with your foot. And then you had to raise it out [of the soil] on the end [of a row]. And then you had two handles on that – some of them had three – and then you could adjust how deep you wanted to go."
