Up here some dirty drawers.
Could you imagine coming across a snake in the patch while laying on your belly.
Down by your maybe a trip to the doctor.

Mike, you're doing a great restoration on that picker! I've seen similar machines made for picking bell peppers, except they were skinny to fit between the rows. You sat on them instead of laying down, and steered with your feet. There was a hanger where you might expect to find handlebars, and you hung your burlap sack on it to put the peppers in. Maybe you can find one of those & restore also. I believe they were rear wheel drive though. Not seen one in 25 years.

I got all excited about this until I saw it was 6 yo.
