Don't think the sand is such a good idea unless you are using a grain drill
or sling/broadcaster. The sand will chew up most planters. If I were to
plant such small seeds, I'd put it in a slinger with some sand. Then, after
it started to come up, I'd come through with a set of sweeps and make rows.
Just another idea.
