I recognize the leaf (LOL) but don't know what that wheel thing is. I'm guessing it's a farm implement of some kind.

Lovely display of "who knows what" with great designs and once utilities. I'm guessing something to do with tobacco farming?

a Cultivator, a seed (corn?) planter, and a tobacco basket, right?

A walking cultivator, a tobacco setter with a reservoir for water and a chute to drop the tobacco transplant down. You jab the thing in the ground, mash the trigger, and the plant and a dose of water go in the dirt. It was a cumbersome apparatus that wasn't much improvement over a crooked stick and a bucket of water. And, yes, a tobacco basket for holding the hands of tobacco to take to market -- we used all of these at one time.

Interesting to see something I know nothing about. Something that also makes a very beautiful photo composition.

All I guessed was the walking cultivator I used to try and help my grandpa with his Garden. Thanks for taking me back
