Seed inoculant and sowing quesion for food forest swale

Hey y'all,
I'm digging some swales and will be planting them with a cover crop of blue lupine, field peas, hairy vetch, cereal rye, and oats along with my trees. I have two different inoculants for the lupine and the peas/vetch. Can I just put all of my seeds in one bucket and dump both inoculants in, or is it better to inoculate and sow the seeds separately?
Thanks for any help! This is my first really big permaculture project, and I'm super excited!
Chris

Personally I would just mix them all together and plant at the same time.

 
A lot of people cry when they cut onions. The trick is not to form an emotional bond. This tiny ad told me:
