Here’s the planter row up close. The left and right packer wheels are made for different soil conditions. That’s why one is spiked and one isn’t.

Here’s the corn seed in the seed box. It’s pink because it has insecticide on it to keep the bugs from eating it until it can sprout and emerge.

Richard’s getting the bags of seed down and ready to empty into the planter.

This is the talc blend we put in the seed box to help the seed slide down the tubes easier. It has graphite and talc mixed.

Filling the seed boxes. The box on the left is for insecticide when needed.

This is just a very small stack of the seed bags we used.

This is our “buddy seat” in the tractor. It’s so I or anyone else can ride along. When the kids were little they didn’t have these seats so we’d shove a junior sized bean bag on the side and let them ride there. At 3 years old Matt would fall asleep tucked into that seat and ride for a long time with Daddy.
