Seed Finder
California farmer Bill Humes is doing a booming sideline business with his best-seller Seed Finder. At last count, he'd sold the device to 165 firms in 17 states and 4 foreign countries.
His Seed Finder is a pointed piece of plastic about 6 in. long that you use when planting to dig out seeds to see if the planter's working properly. "I got tired of wearing out my fingers, or dulling the blade of my pocket knife," says Bill, recalling how he came up with the idea. It's marked in inches so you can use it as a ruler to measure seed depth in ? in. increments.
Individual Seed Finders sell for $1 each, including postage, handling and imprinting your name (up to 16 letters all caps, or 24 letters lower case). Bulk orders, including imprinting, are 65 cents each for 100, and 45 cents each in lots of 500 or more. They're available in gold, red, green or blue, and can be imprinted in the color of your choice.
