Willie,
I love my earthway for larger seeds and seeds that I am less picky on
spacing. This year I began using a glaser seeder for small seeds (I do alot
of salad greens) and I LOVE IT!I used it on onions, carrots, greens and a
whole bunch of other small seeds and would never use my earthway again for
that. It is also easy to use in high and low tunnels. Hope this helps.
