So it was more of a play and see thing than any serious attempt at sowing a field. But I used the seedball method for green manuring the orchard. Using the local soil which is mostly clay then added a good quantity of composted manure from the chook yard. It was quite sticky with minced meat type texture so I spread it around. We had torrential rain last night that broke up the seed balls and I thought the birds might help themselves to the seeds today. But on closer inspection many of the seeds sprouted over night and are busy sending roots into the ground. Can't wait to see what it looks like in a weeks time.
