Rudi; Nice pics, that takes some of the work out of planting don't it. We don't cover that deep here in our part of the world only about 3 or 4 inches. Any how looks good

Rudi. Nice pictures. I'm sure by the time your planting is completed, you will be an expert at it. Nice to see it turning into a family project!

Nice job Rudy. Who's the old guy on the tractor? Hope you don't pay him much. Looks simular to what I have as you've seen from the photos I sent you months back. I'll probably change mine around in the future once the wood decides to rot out. If you were to make another one, what would you do different? I'll play devils advocate for a moment. I like how it is attached to the rear cultivator bars as it provides lateral support which mine doesn't. Does it provide enough down preasure to hill up? How did you determine the length of your square stock. Seems like its about 4 feet long. Are you happy with that length or would you consider shortening it up? I'll enclose one of the photos in case others don't remember my rustic setup. Its funny that it takes about 20 minutes to hook it up and 10 minutes to hill up the tatoes. I planted about 75 pounds this year and look forward to hilling them. With the front cultivators on to loosen up the soil it works just perfect. Just have to come across a one row digger from up northern Maine to ease my back during digging.

Rudi, I use Netscape and all I can see is a black box. I'm wondering if anyone else has this problem?

Part of Rudi's site can be viewd with Netscape, but Internet Explorer is necessary for some of it. Rudi knows about the problem and has been attempting to work on it.
