Lily Bulb Description

This is our earliest potato digger dating to the mid 1800's. A simple machine, you hitched it to your horse, and adjusted the iron guide wheels on the front to straddled the row. A slap with the reins and off you went with the plate on the back digging under the potatoes and pushing them up over the back bars by the force of the next mound of potatoes, leaving them on top of the soil to dry. This was then followed by the back breaking work of walking the rows and picking up your crop. Overall for its age, it is in very good condition. The curved portion of the right handle is broken off. Pictured here in mid December, this piece was set among toad lilies and other perennials. SOLD
