My husband and I have been working diligently on our pastures for a number of years now. I have some areas that have spotty growth with soil showing. I don't like bare soil, and the birds seem to love to eat the seed I broadcast, so I'm experimenting with Fukuoka-style seed pellets as described in The One-Straw Revolution.
I used a lot of different seeds and learned that this seems to work best with smaller seed, like grasses, clovers, and herbs. The larger seeds like corn, sunflower, squash, and field peas didn't coat as well. The wheat and oat seed were hit and miss.
So now I wait. I'm very hopeful I'll get good growth and fill in some of my pasture bare spots!
