TOPIC: Planting finally done!!!!!!

Planting finally done!!!!!! 3 years 8 months ago #33406

After 900+ beds (quit counting after 900) raked and 42 lbs planted. I never want to see another rake the rest of my life.... Lol. Actually wasn't bad and enjoyed my time in the woods. A lot more Labor intensive than just planting wild berries. But hey!!!! Just rake several beds can't be that hard right.... Wrong!!!!! Lol!!!!! Oh well hopefully it grows. Thanks for everyone's help and advice. Hope I can return it some day. Good luck everyone.

Hey Loggy,

How many hours did it take you to do that?

Awesome news. That's a lot of work for sure.

I planned to get my planting done last weekend but had a break down, maybe this coming weekend I'll get it done.

Fishman - It took around 130 to 140 man hour's about. You can really cover some ground with 2 guys. And you can really fly with 3 people. We did 140 beds in 8 hours with 3 guys. But if you try to plant that much by yourself your doomed, unless your unemployed or retired.

How much acreage did you spread those beds over?

It's probably spread over 40 acres. I allowed 14 lbs. Per acre. When I started I thought I could put it on 10 acres. A person should probably allow 10 acres for 1 acre of seed cause the woods won't let you plant that close together unless you do some major clearing which I wasn't wanting to do.
