    Bulk Seed Source (This One Is Not Worth Buying From)

    I had purchased seed from Main Street Seed & Supply Co. I planted corn, peas, okra, eggplant, squash, cantaloupe, and watermelon. The peas, okra, eggplant, and squash did not germinate and did not get the first plant. The corn came up sporadic at best; I would venture I had less then 50%...

    Planters More Information On the Yetter Flex 71 Planter

    I have been looking at the Yetter Flex 71 one-row planter. It appears that you are better off buying your own 4-inch toolbar for your three-point hitch separately. If you buy their hitch assembly plus the tool bar from Yetter you are going to be well over $400. I believe you can purchase the...
