heck no...dig a row with the hoe...pinch a few seeds...scatter thinly...

it's the reason i built this so i wouldn't get the seeds to close together for onions/corn/beans/peas

thanks for the compliment...i've spent decades gardening...that's why i have a 3 ft handle on that "plantin' machine"...no crawlin' involved...step on the top of the board and it makes the holes in the soft dirt to plant the seeds...drop in the seeds/onions/etc...

now as for kissin' hiliary, i'll take the crawlin' anytime

I just scatter the small seeds down the row and then thin them out as they grow . I think it's Gardener's Supply that has some tools for planting them individually .

I use a long-handle hoe to plant corn . Poke the butt into the dirt about 1.5" deep , drop a kernel then cover .

I have the earthway push planter, it works great and is very fast. It tends to plant a little heavy so I put a little electric tape on some the holes on the seed plate. You also need to till it very well before running it. Any grass clods or tight dirt will cause you problems. I till like crazy, drag it flat, then run the planter. Can plant an acre of peas in less than an hour.
