I came up with this last year when my corn planter was down and I had 10 80' rows of corn to plant. It works really well, I have less then $5.00 in this planter, my brother did a video on it and it is now on my YouTube channel, PLEASE share this video with everyone and post it on any other sites you might be on.

Thanks BTS, I may have to try that. I can still bend over OK but straightening beck up is not that easy anymore.

I guess great minds thik alike. I was looking at the Earthway and Hoss seeders earlier this year and decided that it was more money than I wanted to spend. A few minutes of thought and I came up with almost the same thing. Mine is made of 3/4" copper pipe (PVC is not commonly used up here), I put the "T" at the top to use a a handle and mine has a tub attached to use as a seed bin. On mine you have to space the seed by eye.

You may want to look at some of the early planters.
The "automatic" ones hanging in the picture would work really well for you guys. May be something to watch for at auctions

I want something for seedlings LOL. I have 2 Gardenway planters and if your soil is clean and tilled nice they work awsome!
I plant 100'rows of corn in a heartbeat especially with the fertilizer attachment on it.
Beans,corns and other large seed work well with them... small seed not so good..
