Drawing up wheat!

“I finished drawing wheat today.  Drew up 20 bags this forenoon and 10 bags after dinner.  The wheat amounted to 301 – 5/6 bush.  Has stormed a good deal again today.”

In case you were wondering, Drawing up is the act of hauling something by means of a hitch and cart.  In this picture a man has draws up some wheat in 1906
