Farming without machines is hard work. Having the right tool can make a job easier. Before tractors and combines, farming required extensive hands-on work. The wooden seed comb helped to separate small seeds from the larger stalk of the plant. The corn drying spike allowed many ears of corn to dry together. Once harvested and stored, grains and corn could be planted in the spring for another harvest.
