A Couple of Farm Lads Getting Dragged Behind a Tractor on Pumpkin-Planting Duty.

We’ve planted 10,000 strawberry plants by hand.  We’ve pounded umpteen hundred tomato stakes by hand.  We do lots of hard work the old-fashioned way.

Other times we use advanced technology, like this tractor-pulled planter.  The metal wheel makes a hole in the bed, water trickles in from the tank, and one of the gentlemen pops a pumpkin seed into the hole.

This is the speed of farming.
