Clever Gardening Technique

Seeding Without Bending
Place a rubber washer around a length of dowel at the correct planting depth to punch planting holes for big seeds like corn and beans without bending. The washer can be moved up or down the dowel to adjust for differences in seed depths. Less bending means you can garden longer!
