I spent many hours riding on the planter when I was younger than the boy in the picture. I was about nine when Dad bought the first two row tractor planter. By that time I was pulling a spring tooth ahead of the planter.

Mom kept 500 laying hens and she had one coop for starting chicks to fill in for the laying hens culled out. I played with the boxes like those but the chick were under the brooders by the time I would get home from school.

Mom took care of the garden which my brother and I had to help some. I don't remember many smiles from anyone when in the garden though.

Thanks for the pictures. I sure can relate at 75.

I would say up to 20. Our largest fenced in fields were 20 acres. The fields ranged from 10 to 15 acres. We had one 3 acre corner field. Dad wouldn't have started planting until after the milking was done. Dad farmed two 148 acre farms after I was able to help and he bought a larger tractor.
