Sowing the Seed

This is the way we sow the oats, sow the oats, sow the oats!

This is the way we sow the oats, early in the morning!

The ground is moist and the sun is warm, perfect for planting seeds.

Some of the paddocks on our farm are hilly.
We use a different machine to plant the seeds in these paddocks.

 This machine does not move very much dirt,


it makes a very small groove in the ground and the seed and fertiliser are dropped in..


This is where the oat seed and fertiliser are carried


All these seeds will make hundreds more at harvest time.

And in a couple of months this will be a paddock of green, green oats.
The ewes and lambs will love it!
