"Our rows were 40 inches wide. They thought that's what it took for a horse to walk through. And you'd check it, and you'd start out, and this planter when it would go foreward it would pull a little lever back there and that would drop a seed every 40 inches. That way you could cultivate north and south or east and west. And weeds were a big problem because they didn't have no herbicides, so if you could go both ways then you could get most of your weeds."
