seed dibber
« on: May 08, 2019, 15:38 »
Ok I was a little bored and after breaking up a load of palletts for both kindling for the winter months and storing the better pieces for the plot I came up with an idea.
So I now have a 1 metre length piece of pallett which has been drilled and dowls placed to spacings 2 inch (radish and various other small crops) 4 inch, 6 inch and 9 inch, each side of the piece of wood has its own spacing and the dowls set at the correct depth for the seed.

The idea is as follows.... I sow say radish seed each week, I press the dibber into the ground and the correct depth/ spacing is achieved for that particular crop and it is straight, just pop the seed in and sprinkle a little sand to fill.  ;)

Why not just use a dibber to make a small trech I here you say, well the advantage is I dont disturbed as much soil therefore reducing the effect of weed seed being activated  8) Clever Eh!
