I was doing some research (googling) on clay soils and plowing when I ran across this book. It is form the 1920s and has more info on plows than you may want to know. It also has some great pictures of how its done and used to be done. I spent an hour or so just skimming over it.

 

Hope you enjoy.

There's stuff to learn in there for us 'part time farmers'!

I've read that book cover to cover. The way we thought and the processes we used way back when were very interesting.
