I try to transplant as much as I can but carrots beets radishes (root crops)
are direct seeded. But have been unhappy hand broadcasting.
Got to thinking (hehe) so I went and found a salt,pepper and "pizza shop" oregano/parmesan shakers. I planted close to 5000carrots tonite in record time and its seemed spaced better than I could have done by hand. Works for me playing around with the holes and different seeds. Tater
