Planting Corn the Easy Way
 
03:21
This is how to plant a small-medium corn field the easy way! We're keeping it simple while planting our small corn field. A simple piece of scrap pipe serves multiple roles for this job--hoe, planter, impromptu vuvuzela! Yes, we have "real" tools, but this was easier and sometimes it's fun to go basic and just do it. This also serves as Max's YouTube debut! Who is Max? Why he's the newest Cub Cadet on the farm--a $300 Craigslist find. Why Max? Because it looks like it belongs on the set of Mad Max! :D Our Amazon Store: http://astore.amazon.com/greenacrehome-20

SuperShed Workshop Build - Day 8 - Metal Roofing
 
06:50
SuperShed Day 8... about 3 hours worth of work this evening after getting home from work. We (myself + two brothers) finally get into a groove with raising and installing the 19' long tuff rib metal roof panels, with the help of "mega beam". The metal roof looks great and will be a great rainwater collection system in the future. The bronze color turned out nice as well--it's a mix between brown and clay/tan.
