Okay, now, we're going to cover these seeds for you today. We're using this remade cloth. It's spun, woven cloth. It's used in the garden industry. This cloth, we're going to spread over top of these seeds that we just put into the ground. We're going to put the cloth right on top of the ground. This keeps the ground nice and moist from drying out, let's the sunlight in and the heat. Also protects the bed from the varmints that want to come in here and dig that bed up. And we're going to also use some of these hoops that I use for hooping in the gardens to hold the cloth down to keep the wind from blowing it off. Once this is secure then we don't have to worry about the birds or any varmints digging those seeds up.
