Last spring we bought the coolest little tool out of Japan, called a paper chain transplanter from Small Farm Works.
It has saved our bacon many times allowing us to plant massive amounts of seedlings in record time. Our favorite crop to use with this gem is Sunflowers.
Over the weekend we chained in 5,000 Yellow Lite Suns and will be doing the same again in a few days.
While this great tool certainly lessons our work load it still requires effort. I am the lucky grunt that gets to crawl behind it and make sure all of the babies are planted correctly.

So you don’t use the fabric for sunflowers to keep the weeds out?
