Cultivators, Breast Plows, Hand Tillers, Man Pulled Plows
I've been looking for non electric equipment for my garden, and I'm coming to the fact that I need a plow, some kind of plow. First a hand plow of some type, later an electric or gas powered one. I've read of Breast Plows that are used with a wood plate against your stomach to push with, those are just for turf to be dug up, then the cultivators, which only work if soil is loose, and I guess hand tillers are the same as cultivators.
Are there any type of plow that a man can pull instead of using an animal? They are arranged for a man to view from the back while it being pulled, but is there one built for a man to control from the front while pulling his/her own plow for a small garden area?
What are the limits of a plow? Hard soil like hardpan mixed with some clay sometimes depending on how deep.
If anyone has any ideas of what kind of plow can be pulled successfully by a woman, please let me know. Goat plows are small, do I look for a plow made for a small animal?
