Home made seed planter plans?
« on: April 18, 2011, 07:19:51 PM »
I planted a single Plot in WTI Powerplant this past weekend was thinking of planting a few rolls of Corn in the plot
Well Fat Boy here don't bend over very well anymore to plant 6 or 7 rolls of Corn about 100 yards each.
Does any TH member have any plans or ideals to save Possum's back?

 ##$%#1119 Saw a redneck planter once.............. They took a piece of foam pipe insulation, taped it so it couldn't open up all the way down, then they taped that to a stick about 4 - 4 1/2 feet long. They took a hoe and made the row, then used this contraption to drop the corn in as they walked each row, then raked the dirt over to finish - never had to bend down?????? Just brought back a old memory  --099-780

I found this,

Poor Man's Planter

Many seed planter mechanisms have been designed to let the small gardener plant seeds without stooping down and individually planting each hole. One such device is the poor man's planter. This homemade seed planter is nothing but a pvc pipe with an improvised funnel made from a pop bottle stuck in the top. To seed a particular spot, the gardener puts the end of the pvc pipe on that spot and drops a seed or two down the funnel.

That's interesting - So the "redneck planter", as I called it - sounds a lot like that..............  @--0--0123

When I plant corn for a food plot, I just broadcast it out like any other seed, I don't worry about planting it in rows.

I'd think if you're only going to plant a few rows that this would make short work of it.

Really didn't want to Broadcast it because Turkey Season is still on till end of April...
I have already Planted my WTI Powerplant and I want to embed the Corn into the ground so I won't get busted Turkey Hunting over Bait. (if someone hunted near the Plot)
I would have planted the Corn with the Powerplant but the Seed Store was not open on Sunday.

that's a different situation. you may have to go redneck then. next year you will have to mix the seed together and save some work. good luck
