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.
