Whenever I sow seed directly into the garden bed, due to the bizarre laws of physics, I end up with patches of no seedlings and patches where they are growing on top of each other.
I scatter seed by hand whenever the seed is impossibly small to be picking out individual seeds for planting e.g. lettuce.
Is there a technique I can use that results in a more even distribution?
I understand there is a tool available, but I'd prefer not to have one of every tool if I can do it myself.
