This is my 98 year old dad in his garden laying rows with a push plow this morning.

And he is not even using a "string" to get his rows straight. I always had to stretch a string to have my rows nice and straight. That gets to be a problem when having to use "right-handed" tools. Looks like he is doing a great job. :geek:

Thanks for all the great comments and I am proud of my dad. He is a WWII vet and was a submariner in the Navy.

You're a fortunate man Sid. I think I miss my mom and dad more every year.

BTW Chuck, my dad always told me you could plant more in a crooked row! :D
