Lou, did he get the earthway planter ? I needed something for corn and bought one 2 years ago, its ok, seems tricky to get seed to drop uniformly and consistently, in these soils, some rocks etc, no good in any kind of clumps. Something about filling the little hopper, gets too low, you have to lean it into the seed plate, too full something else, I've had skips. I think its too light, I need to find an old Planet Jr, iron and wood, heavier and would have to work better, well push easier or better through these soils. The earthway is probably best for ideal soils, which part of my larger garden does not have yet, I think its on the edge of the fill line when the house was built, and it came from the bottom of the hill here, garden plants will grow in it, just the rocks and clay. There are new models similar to the old Planet Jr's being made, but like $600, next on my list, shoulda never passed on a nicely kept, complete, almost NOS one I saw on CL a few years back, was only $250, with the manual.

PS, I see that cold air coming in up your way, time to keep my stove going !

Billy NY Son went to the basement and took a picture of the planter (and the guarddog of it lol) our soil is fine sandy with black dirt, seeder works ok for us, and couldn't pass up the price. Yep it is colder than a well diggers azz in the klondyke, Both furnances are running to keep the house at 75 deg expect it to continue for a while. Son ran the bobcat to scoop and pile the snow we have had so there is more room for the comming stuff. Just couldn't resist the picture of our gaurd dog, he is a gift from a friend. Notice the door is open,even in this cool weather,he's spoiled He's growing by leaps and bounds.Had to child proof lots of things.Put a swinging gate up,only took a couple of tries and he mastered how to open it,so we put a hasp hook on it, figure a couple of days he'll learn to open it again.He'll be 6 months old in January. Thanks for the reply,

That is too funny, its the same one, and I have the extra plates in a ziplock too, in the hopper with the booklet. The box it came in has something really funny written on it, "end stone age planting methods" There is some artwork included, which is the stone age gardener using a tree limb to open the soil, a funny caricature if that fits, and under his feet it says "the precision seeder eliminates the back pain, slowness and inaccuracy of primative seeding" and primitive, is spelled like the previous.

That pup sure has grown ! Its 80 deg F by the stove, cooler elsewhere, time for venison sausage and peppers, a cold beer some down time and hit the hay !
