It is time to get some potatoes in the ground, all these years I have used a hoe..or is it Ho' to dig rows...that sucks so I built this "row-er" or what ever it is called

I purchased 2 row crop sweeper things from Agri supply, main purpose was to use them on my hiller etc to break up the dirt that was compacted by my tires, I thought as a went looking for ho's the other morning...that sounds bad hugh :laughing: how to do this with my tractor?

I saw them laying on the trailer and said "if I could hold them behind tractor and pull them..." out came cutoff wheels, grinder and welder

I needed an adjustable clamps so I welded this up and used pennies for a .06 gap..

Nice! When I was a kid, we used a stick. Come to think of it, I still use a stick. But then, I only plant about 10' of potatoes. :D
