Cover the seeds with about 1/8" of soil either by hand or by raking soil over them perpendicular to the drill. Mist the entire area lightly with water, and in 7-10 days you should see seedlings emerging from the soil. After the seedlings have formed their first true leaves, it's time to thin them out. Remove all but the healthiest starts, leaving appropriate spaces between. Follow the recommendations for spacing on the packet of seeds you are using.
