Early corn Planting —Alla Peek Quarterman

My grandmother wrote this around 1960, when she was around 77 years old. -jsq

I remember when corn in the fields was dropped by hand β€” 2 grains every two steps. Mule plow opened the furrow & children dropped the grains.

The first corn planter was considered bad β€” it was sure to keep the seed from sprouting!

My brother Patrick found this text in a notebook his aunt Elsie had kept.
