An entire booklet on the subject of "Farming with Dynamite" (printed by DuPont in 1910) is available in PDF format
. It explains the expected stump removal, ditch-digging, and cellar excavation, but also some surprises such as the "plowing" described above.
This isn't a joke; this is one way land was worked before the advent of power tools. Credit to J-Walk.
