it is as if a man were to scatter seed on the land
and would sleep and rise night and day
and the seed would sprout and grow,
he knows not how.
In Jesus’ day, from what I understand, farmers usually broadcast their seed over the plowed earth. That is, they carried a bag of seed into the field, and scattered it about by hand in every direction. Without the modern harvesters there was no particular need to plant straight rows.
