After the potato digger extracted the potatoes from the ground, potato pickers gather the crop into baskets, then dump them into barrels.
A picker is paid by the barrel. Pickers place a numbered ticket on each of their barrels for identification. At the end of the day, pickers' tickets are counted and they are paid accordingly.
