We have all 3 sizes of the Hatfield transplanter. They do work much better
in fluffy ground, but it's not hard to sort of scuff dirt around the
transplants when the soil is less than perfect. My husband "runs" the
Hatfield, and I carry and drop plants in. I scuff dirt around the plants
that aren't completely covered as we go down the row. You develop a rhythm
as you go so that you can cover with your foot without slowing down.
The only problem we've noticed is when the plants get a little too big and
then the leaves will sort of hang up in the tube. A tap on the ground
usually gets things moving again though.
Perkins, OK 86 and windy!
