What the heck is this?

I spotted this contraption in a garden in the Holland Marsh recently.   I know it has two wheels and a seat, but beyond that I have no idea what it is.   I'm sure a Holland Marsh native would know.
Please comment if you wish.

  1. Well, I recognize the tractor seat, though otherwise I have as few clues as you on its use.

  2. I believe that it is pulled behind a tractor and used for seeding crops or planting seedlings. You can see the blades that create the furrow. The planting would have been done manually, hence the need for the seat. That's my guess.
