Anybody here interested in plowing info? I've got a reprint of a 1909 plowing manual that I think has a lot of good info in it that I can post if anyone's interested. It's got a lot about how and why and timing. Like...

"Plow, if possible, when the soil will drop from the moldboard in a mellow, friable condition.
It is better to plow when too dry than when too wet, and don't delay the work too near seeding time."

It was published by John Deere for walking plows, but a lot of it seems relevant to any kind of plowing. In 1909, they made at least 27 different kinds of walking plows!
