extent of footbinding in Ming

In Ming dynasty chastity-stories and epitaphs, I have come across references to mothers of literati who helped their families by working in the fields or carrying food to workers in the fields.  Does this indicate that these women's feet were not bound?  Or does it, rather, indicate that women with bound feet *could* still work in the fields where necessary?  (Ming sources suggest that most women's family-helpful work was textile work that could be done sitting.)
