Stand-Up Seed Planter
"For people like me, who are older and have a bad back but still like to garden, this stand-up planter works great," says Roy Ream, Sarasota, Fla.
  "I've been making and using these for over 20 years. They work well with all vegetable seeds and flower seeds.
  "It consists of a 36-in. long piece of 3/4-in. conduit (depending on your height) that's tapered to a point at one end. A hinged flap, with a horizontal lever made from angle iron attached to it, covers the opening.
  "Push the pointed end into the ground. The weight of the angle iron holds the flap closed. Tilt the planter tube toward the lever and the flap will open. Drop seed into the top of the pipe, pull it out, and tap with your foot."
