Spring Break? Ah yeah...that's when we would break up the fields while out of school. Had to have it ready to run off the rows before 'bacca planting time.

I heard rumors that city folks went to the beach during that time, but never believed it. Pappy always said those city folks stretched the truth. :biggrin

It sure was fun driving that tractor with implements at 10 years old or less. Starting out with a harrow and drag, which didn't require perfect driving. Round and round all day long.

More experience and you were trusted to do the first plowing a couple years later. Plow and cross-plow... nothing worse than getting bounced to death when cross-plowing. :rolleyes:

Later when you got REALLY good, they'd let you lay-off the rows. Then you'd start doing the cultivating and side-dressing... and you dang well better not damage any tobacco plants.

Looking back on it... they let me 'work up the ladder' until I was doing almost ALL the work. lol
