OFTEN CONFUSED WORDS (PLOUGH/PLOW)

Happy Wednesday and good morning, Daily Vitamin followers!

This week, we are focusing on often-confused words. Today's words are PLOUGH vs. PLOW

Definition of PLOW: US spelling of a farm tool used to break the soil before planting seeds or plants, and for breaking snow. It is also the verb for the action of breaking the soil or snow.
