Here is a garden seeder i built. its very simple, push it along and drop your seeds down the pipe :) I'm thinking i will see if i could make a simple little meter for it, to make things easier :D

I plan to seed my corn with it, much better than a hoe and a little sack of seeds

Neat, but if you put the pedals back on, you won't have to walk!!

Yep, can be used for many things... How will you separate the seed? A vid will be interesting :thumbs:

How will you separate the seed?


What do you mean? I will drop seeds in, and hope I'm being accurate about it

That'll save your back! How about a seed hopper and a trigger?

Currently working on one, it'll be an agitator that spins and seed will drop down.

I'll take a pic of it when its done

Okay, just got done!
Here it is,
I dont have it on yet
As you can see its only about 4" wide, and has a small agitator in it, and a tiny hopper above it. And I will run it by using the crank.
The holes in the bottom were burnt through with a welder, not pretty but they won't be seen anyway.

Everything except the agitator and crank are 1/4" thick steel

Easier to turn a crank than to drop seeds into the tube? Yeah, I think so

Now that's different. How far apart are you wanting the seeds?

I'm thinking fairly close, 1- 2" (my expirience with growing corn is that it is very poor seed,but this year I'm using different seed from a different company. So that could change)
But as far as plants go, I'm thinking 4" apart on 24" row spacing

Connect your crank to the wheel and let the wheel do the work for you.  Looks like you will have a good tool for planting.
