Old Time Harvest in 2010
Tommy Hughes, the radiator repair man and antique tractor collector from Cordele gave us a trip to the past Saturday when he harvested his stacked peanuts with an old Turner stationery peanut picker.
Tommy found the picker in another man's shed and the man said he was about to burn it and sell the metal for scrap. Tommy rescued the picker and Saturday it ran like a well oiled machine.
There was also a stationery hay baler from the same era.
Watch for the video soon on the Peanut Commission You Tube page.
