many of your smaller seeds like clover can be broadcasted and raked in or frost seeded.The main thing is to get a soil sample and kill the weed competition.Check out qdma.com for lots of info

Clover is undoubtfully the easiest i've ever used. It can be spread and inoculated by hand or hand speaders.

there are several products out there that are supposed to require very little work.."Throw and Grow"..."Secret Spot"...theyre supposed to require very little work, just a little cleaning out of an area...of course, the more work you put in the better results you can expect

I hunt in east tx., and have great success with iron/clay peas(cow peas). they are easy to plant, require little maintenance, and best of all the deer love them and the cows don't. they are almost 100% utilized by the deer only. They also have a fairly high protein content along with other nutrients. I used a 4w w/ a simple homemade drag to "open up" the soil, applied lime & fert. and let nature do the rest. good luck.

Turnups may be another simple product. It is usely whats in the throw and grow type products. But works best if you are in a colder climate, so they can turn in to sugars.
