It is unfair for the woman to do the pounding, because I will still pound her. man should help her do that.

when i marry, my wife will not even know the location of the mortar, pounding is an exclusive right/priviledge/sufferness of MEN

If she has probs with the technique, she tell me and i'll make adjustment.

Shikena!

U started with something reasonable, but ended it the other way,

why would you compare pounded yam to poundo yam, the difference is so wide.

@ poster

Never will I allow my wife to do the pounding NEVER. I don't want to see her with muscles on her arm.

moreso I don't see that act to be a part of femininity at all.

The man shuld pound it, and the woman checking if done well, and the woman will feed the man with some of the yam, and they kiss a little while pounding sef.

To stop all the wahala, do poundo yam jare . . . the flour thing, easy and better than that yama yama yam pounding

Nobody should pound yam. Use manual grinder to grind yam and even cocoyam. It comes out smoother that way.

Haba! What kind of dumb question is this? Of course, the man should pound yams. The woman bears children which is more strenuous.

not that i can't pound yam for my love but he's got to pound it sometimes to. and remember the bible says women are the helper and the last time i checked what helper means, it say if someone is doing something and he can';t finish it, the helper comes in. so if we have 5 visitors and he got tired after pounding for four of them, i will come in to pound for the remaining one.

There's long been a little machine called a yam pounder.I have an aunt that used it even in the eighties.

It must have modern versions now.

If you love your wife and love pounded yam,buy her one for Christmas.

Yam powder will never be as good as real pounded yam. Try pounding yam using the Minna yam, u wont touch that powder again.

You wey no grow up in a village,how you u sabi wetin dey happen for olden days?Living in the village puts me in a better postion to find out how life was in the past

you lived in the village in recent time. you are asking of olden days

@Loverbwoy

that might have worked for them in the past, but try visiting the village in this new age and see if you can pass a building without someone staring at you with a wrong eye or trying to rob you of your belongings. if you still wanna go, might help you carry your belongings. problem is you dont really want to.

All this is laughable.Helping people did not take up most of their time.Pooling labor resources as you suggest would only lead to lesser working time.So if you what you are saying is true,they could be spending as little as 30 days a year on farming

@ 4 play

thanks for telling them something i already knew! men rode bicycles to the farm and worked only a few hours while the women trekked there on foot to do all the work and come back later with all the load on her head!

4play,

[Are you a farmer?There is no way they farm all year round from morning to night]

its hard to believe but they actually do farm all year round from morning to night. dont forget, even if they are not working on their farm, they are helping a friend, or family member or some other person.

[People in the olden days did not have large industrial farms.They had relatively small farms.Remember,there are 365 days in year].

actually the people i know from the olden days did have large farms (both in size and in no). all the places that have houses now or are being populated were all farms. you had the living areas/quarters and then farms were a distance away from those places.

while the women are weeding, the men are slashing with the cutlass. my dear, if you actually know the in and out of farming, you would see how possible it is that they are able to be at that job all year round. if they are done with theirs, there is someone else to be helped, they helped each other, not like today where the motto is "to your own tent oh Isreal"

Weeding of those small farms can be performed once every 2 weeks.Planting generally takes a day,at worse a couple of days.Harvesting takes the longest amount of time and at worse 5 days.

All the above may take an average of 40-60 days out of 365.So what did the men do for the remaining 300 days.Besides,in some cases women did most of the farming

Nobody has come up with a good answer as to what men did all day long in the past     

PS:I forgot to add digging up ridges,that can take a couple of days
