Last fall I collected a large quantity of wildflower seed and stored it in a cloth shopping bag. Now that I have planted out my tomatoes and with rain in the offing, I decided to sow the seed – cosmos, sunflower, marigold and zinnia. I was gifted two old cultivators – they are 5 feet wide and connect to the three point hitch at the back of the tractor. The tines are spring tensioned. I have a 60hp tractor which typically would pull a larger cultivator and so I had to make some adjustments to fit the cultivator to the tractor. But the hitch fitted without a hitch, so to speak, and with my tractor in its lowest (slowest) gear I made several passes on contour across the sloping field. The tines did a great job making furrows in the field and displacing stones. I then hand sowed my collected seed in the furrows. I probably should have finished the job dragging large planks with chains, which came with the cultivator, to bury the seeds. I am hoping we get rain, but not too much, and the rain will settle the seeds in the soil. Below is a ‘photo of the cultivator.
