How do your sprinklers work? Do they just spray in 180 degree's?

We planted zipper peas, cream 12s, pink eyes and some "yard long" peas Daddy gave us.

Brandon, yes they are adjustable and you can set them to spray 180 degrees.

doing good, and as others said, i sure wish I had some nice weather like that. I would sugest being moving before letting the planter down to reduce the chances of dirt plugging the runner/chute

Also picking it up on the move, stopping and rocking backwards before lifting can plug it, as well.

Very nice and straight rows too. You'll probably cultivate a couple of times before I get a plow in the ground. It snowed a couple of inches here yesterday so it's really nice to see your vidio.

Watch that lady go. You got some good help looks like. Makes any project more enjoyable when you have a partner willing to help. Thanks for taking the time to share the video.

Wish I could plant peas! I "planted" my IH444, this morning, moving a trailer, in the field, to move some firewood, from a tree I cut. Managed to get out, without the trailer! Colder, tomorrow morning. Might be enough frost, to move the trailer! Ed

Everything is coming up. Peas,okra, and corn. We should be getting fresh peas by the end of May.
