I just dropped the price of
the permaculture playing cards
for a wee bit.

 

 

uses include:
- infecting brains with permaculture
- convincing folks that you are not crazy
- gift giving obligations
- stocking stuffer
- gambling distraction
- an hour or two of reading
- find the needle
- find the 26 hidden names

I've used one, but it seems to be something like this - pottiputki planting tube



And here's a video showing something similar in use.

My husband made one like Burra's picture.  He made it out of PVC.  I am the one who used it and found it very helpful and easy.  No bending over so it was easy on the back.  He had dug the trench and went behind me to cover the seeds.

I am using some of them to plant Garlic  and Saffron because everybody believe that Garlic must be planted heads up.
At least here ( Italy) there are several of them manufactured locally, with holes ranging from 20 mm to 60 mm

If I can make a suggestion:
Purchase the big ones.
Than it's easy to insert  a smaller pvc pipes in order to deal with the small plant / corms
