Used to be called plowing corn here. It's a thing of the past now. I never plowed a lot of corn, but tobacco used to require plowing at least 3 or 4 times, and I've done plenty of that.

Wabi, your 'layin by corn and my cotton, reminded me of something one of my great uncles told me. It has to do with juneteenth.


Back during the days of hand chopping and hoeing cotton, you had to hoe the cotton a few times. Chopping came first and then, depending on the rain, you had to hoe it at least 1 time and some years 3 times, but that was unusual. The last time you hoed the cotton, remember it is not too tall, they would come thru and plow the middles and throw soil up on the rows. This was laying by the cotton. Everyone wanted their cotton laid-by before the middle of June. Once this was done, the field hands could/would have a celebration. Thus Juneteenth.

I know that isn't what the scholars say, but some claim that there was a celebration after the crops were laid by, way before the civil war. It could be that there just wasn't a set date for that celebration.

We'll never know.

Two different things . Plowing is breaking ground with a plow . Cultivating is running a cultivator through after you plow, disc, plant and your plants have come up . It gets rid of the weeds trying to take over between the rows . Maybe your part of the country calls it different but that's how it works around here .

John, I bought a M&W hoe at the Carroll Machinery sale years ago, and we've never used it.

I'll add, the organic farmers still harrow, and rotatory hoe crops.
