  1. a four row planter! damn, i need one of those...

    notice how they're cutting the potatoes as they walk the rows, and planting them as they land (eyes down)...all the gardening books will tell you to cut the seed potatoes at least a day before to air cure the cut surface, and plant with the eyes up...
