@Beer can the feet are there so that the plow doesn't bite in. They are super important when plowing bumpy gravel, since it keeps the plow above the gravel, and keeps you from wrecking the plow by sticking it into the rocks, and keeps you from wrecking the road by scraping all of the gravel off of the road and into the ditch.
Anyway, I had one foot, so as long as I kept the plow in a 'V', or made sore that the edge that was down was the one with the foot, I was fine.
However, with the steep slopes, it is super tricky to pow it with only one edge that can go down... anyway, I managed, but it was frustrating.
SUPER funny! we had the day of harvest today.... so many things going on, I let the kids do only 2 (the ones we want for Christmas).
I had one kid take pictures for you, while two harvested.
As a result, I have LOTS of blood photos, lots of photos of the heads being chopped off, one photo actually got the head in mid air! However, there is not a single photo of the gutting or plucking. The photos of the white snow splattered in blood are actually pretty artistic. again...
They also took two videos, both of headless ducks, narrated with something along the lines of "look how it still moves even without a head"
DANG! I am on my laptop.. and the hide button isn't showing... I wanted to post (under the hide button) the photo of the head sailing off.
Anyway, the way my boys do it, (to make sure that no boy fingers are lost) is that one boy has the head in a noose, and while holding the end of the rope, stretches the neck out nice and straight, and then the other boy chops the head off with the ax. This way the death is fast and painless. Happy meat is yummy meat!
A chicken also needs rope around the legs, but the ducks are happy to stay where they are placed, so only the one rope is needed.
I can't tell you how much I am waiting to eat those ducks! I am already drooling!!!!!!
