    I have three of them two are bolted together so i can plant two rows at once .. if you have honey bee's you can plant black oil sun flower seed with the planter ..i think i use the bean plate two plant the sun flower seeds. .

    I like mine I just need to get myself all of the seed plates. Like you I got mine second hand and the only plate that could be found was the carrot plate.

    Josh, I see your nice orchard in the background there. Friendly suggestion. Consider cutting/killing the sod around those trees they will establish much quicker, less competition for the nitrogen, and deter voles.

    I’ve never used one but I think I should get one. Usually I have a big garden and plant seeds by hand. My back and knees hurt after

    Get you a Respro mask. They come from the UK but they're great for outdoor activities that make you ill with allergies. It's like a N95 mask but better.

    why does youtube keep unsubbing me? i watched just about all your videos. just dont comment.

    Don’t listen to the hateful comments left on onelonelyfarmer’s video. People like that are always there, don’t let it affect you. You have more than 70000 people who think differently. Anyway, thanks for another informational and entertaining video. God bless

    I have two of them and they work great. Slow and steady is key so the seeds can be lifted by the plate and drop properly into the seed chute without skipping or popping out. Also, the chain is supposed to drag behind the seed chute to fill the furrow before the rear wheel packs it down.

    we usually either buy peppers, or start them when we do the tomatoes. Interested how they come out for you. I also thought those planters were a toy, but am more interested now that I've seen yours work so well !! cool videos !!!!

    Modifications
    Made handle 6"-8" longer.
    Made handle full 12" wide.
    Place a plate(wood) between handles bout halfway between u n seeder , make a knob the size of the inter hole on seed plates, make it long enough for all your seed plates in a stack plus a 1" . Put a hole thru this with a long 1/4" carriage bolt , make a washer 2" in diameter. Place all seed plates on knob place 2" washer on tighten with wing nut. A roll of cheap 3/4" masking tape may be added to top of seed plates beforehand. Often times , like squash seed , place masking tape on back side of plate covering holes to change spacing.
    Cut a detergent or other large bottle (one with flat side) or some thin sturdy material to add to the hopper. Place at a steep angle towards pick up plate , once satisfied with fit (make it tight ) few areas of hot glue will hold in place.
    Then no need to tilt, small seeds feed easer, or a small quantities feed better.
    These mods take 1/2-1 hour of time.
    Easer on back.
    Hmm just where I left those seed plates at ? No more.
    Awe spacing too close, o if I tape up all holes but one hmm 8" spacing or more dependent on plate.
    Take rule & mark on row marker with a center punch,then with a black marker, maker will rub off , in center punch divot it will stay. 12"18" marks.
    Any more ideas I'd love to hear em.
    These alone will save steps n time for years to come. 👍👌✌️

    Josh, I reside outside of Houston and know all about allergies. Noticed you keep bees, a tablespoon of LOCAL honey everyday keeps the allergies away. I'm all into natural remedies, just turned 59 and have not sought out the services of a medical doctor for 25 years. Add some lemon and ACV too. Happy Trails

    Allergies! Ugh! A few years ago I started using local honey in my coffee. The allergies aren't so bad anymore.

    Awesome tool there Josh. Potatoes would be another thing you couldn't plant with that cause the seed is too big.

    I used to see that in our local CO-OP and now I know that it works. Great little machine.

    What happened to all the other plants you started in the starter pods?

    Just a few months ago, my brother gave me the exact same planter! Thanks for letting me know what that arm does…couldn't figure it out… Have you ever tried "Incredible Corn"? It's YUMMY!

    James King

    (June 8, 2018 - 9:56 pm)

    Wonder if there is a modern version of the seed planter ? If not , you could build a modern version from Stoney ridge Farms. Something to think about Josh.

    I have the same one. Makes life a lot easier.

    I have the same one and love it. Can't go too fast or it skips. I believe the chain is the move the dirt back over the seed. I don't use the row marker. Our soil is way to rocky. Got mine from my parents. I have an old troy built tiller with the cast iron engine. Dad had one of those too.

    The Jang seeder is heavier and easier to control, but they run about $600, so unless you're doing an acre plus or production growing, the earthway works fine.👍

    That machine looks very much like a vintage machine we used to have. Of course, that machine had no plastic on it. The wheels were iron or mild steel, so was the rest of the machine. Design was very similar though.

    My corn plate plants way too thick, but I thin them out easily with a hoe. Putty the holes to create longer planting distances between seeds, never tried it though.

    I have one. Best to test the seed is falling out in your hand first before starting your row/bed. (Spin the wheel) I direct seed dense so the row marker isn’t necessary. The Jang is a higher end model for really good accuracy. $500.00/$700.00 price tag. These seeders are great

    Earthway nice machine. I used to have a broadcast spreader buy them. Grandpa it was very gassy LMFAO . You're just a funny guy Josh. Prairie dog. Haha . That machine is awesome I think it's a total back saver I mean who wants to sit there and put the seeds in by hand I think it's a great machine and the fact you can still buy the desks on Amazon is fantastic I give it a go.
    I always look forward to watching your videos they're very exciting and very entertaining and a lot of learning information from my family and my kids thank you for continuing to not swear on your channel. Big thumbs up !

    Please try this to help with allergies If you can get any local honey get it and eat a teaspoon full a day for a few weeks, and that should take care of your allergies ! It's an old farmers cure , my mom said it works well !
