    40+ Hacks for YOU (the Urban Gardener)

    Meglymoo87; here is a picture, I think? So the pipe on the left is marked every inch and lays on the ground. The one in the middle has electrical tape on one end and this is used to put a hole in the seed bed where the seed will be inserted using the third pipe. Ideally they would all be the same size but put this together in a hurry for this answer. So if I am planting green beans I would lay the first tube down on my seed bed and every 4 inches I would use the second tube to put a dimple or hole in the seed bed. Then I would go along with seeds in one hand and the last tube in the other placing the bottom over each hole and drop a seed in. Then just rake over tap down and wait for home grown goodness to arrive.

    You can use pvc pipe for planting tool. It is light weight and almost indestructible. One peice about three feet long marked every inch all the way around the tube with permanent marker. That is your marker for each seed. If you use a string to do a straight line you can thread this onto it for easy movement. Another peice long enough so you don't have to bend over to use it; three to four feet. Use electrical tape to close off the end of this pipe. This is your hole maker for the seed.

Now put the seeder in the whole and drop a seed in the top. It will drop into the hole ready to be covered and grow. Works great for ...

Now put the seeder in the whole and drop a seed in the top. It will drop into the hole ready to be covered and grow. Works great for larger seeds like beans and peas. Very little bending over if you have a bad back. Usually you can scoot the marker tube with one of the other tubes.
