|The furrows before crops are planted|
I wanted to include crops, and I found the best way to do that would be tedious, but it works. I laid a thin line of white glue down each row in the field, then sprinkled on green ground cover. Ideally it lands in a nice row. Fortunately, real crops aren't perfectly straight, so gaps and a bit of randomness adds to the look.
In the future I'll clean up the edges with some black paint. For now, I'm pleased with the results.
