Getting Seeds up to the Planting Field

Now the seeds are ready to go up to the field where they’ll be planted.

First I pack the bags of seed into metal garbage cans and wire them shut to keep animals out.

These are the bags just before they’re packed into the garbage cans.

Here are some cans full of bags of seeds.

Here are the garbage cans wired shut and ready to go.

Then I drive the cans up to the field – this year I used 5 garbage cans which didn’t fit very well into the gator.

When I get to the field, I drop off the cans in a line, approximately the same distance apart, so I don’t have to walk very far to get to the seeds for the sections I’m planting.
