The process of planting potatoes has become quite pleasant as we have mechanized much of the labor. First we make a furrow in the planting bed. Next, we walk down the bed dropping the potatoes into the furrow, about one foot apart. This step is shown in the first clip of the video. Then we use our small cultivating tractor to bury the potatoes using hilling discs. This is demonstrated in the second and third clips of the video. In the second clip I am driving the tractor and holding the camera beneath the steering wheel, giving a drivers view point of the hilling discs in action. The third clip is the view of the tractor approaching as it is burying the potatoes. The entire process is executed with very little need to bend over. As small scale vegetable farmers we spend much time on our knees, bent over and crouching. Anytime that we can eliminate those positions is a good step toward self-preservation and longevity in this laborious profession.
