Who makes the best plastic mulch layer for the money? Raised and flat bed types. Thanks Tracy
Liberals should know this by now. Voting for Obama the first time was ignorant, voting for him the second time was just stupid.

Tracy, when I quit growing tobacco I tried habinerio peppers. I borrowed a layer that Was probably top of the line. It had hydraulic device to compensate for tractor movement. Worked great. All I know that it was green. The next year I built one, it formed a ridge and and lays drip tape ,works good on flat ground if you go straight. Kind of crude but it works in a small garden.

I just want a pretty simple one for garden and berries. I can make one but don't really have the time, but might have to. Pics would be great. Thanks Tracy

They're pretty much all the same, IMHO. Newer ones will have more goodies on them, but you get what you pay for.  Since you wanted pix, I included the link, below.  Don't buy from this guy, he's a grade A asshat, and his prices are always sky high...

Mechanical Transplanter looks like the ticket, if I buy one, or copy it for that matter! Thanks Tracy

Tracy, I worked for a grower the last 7 years that closed up shop last year. The Mechanical Transplanter  model worked great. Very simple just like me. I thought it was pricey for what it was but I bought it used for her, so pretty good deal. 

By the way, do you have any more of those beautiful lift handles for the G front lift?

Jeff, I think it is the way to go. I have a couple left of the handles. I am not making any more of them. Thanks Tracy
