Getting ready for Sowing

A very busy time for Dad, trying to get everything organised for sowing (planting the seeds). Trucks have been coming all day with loads of fertiliser, this time it is lime, it looks and feels a bit like baby powder. Next week a man will come and spread it all over the paddocks before the seeds are sown. All the dirt on farms is different and some is much better than others, the dirt on our farm needs a little bit extra to help make the plants grow.
Another truck came today, this truck sucks all the seeds into its machines and takes the bad seeds out and puts special pink powder on the good seeds to protect them from all different sorts of diseases.
Now all we need is a little bit of rain to top it all off and then Dad will be REALLY busy!
