Farming question

I'm a new user and love the game so far--it reminds me a lot of TerraFirmaCraft. 

About a day after I plant seed in farmland, the farmland "rejects" the seed.  Often I can collect it and try again.  I planted on medium fertility farmland, placed on a lakebed so it's 1 tile from water.  I used a flint hoe, while the starter guide says metal tools are required for farming, but the hoe actually worked and made farmland.

What might I be doing wrong?

Oh yea, since v1.10 stone hoes also work. I corrected that in the wiki now.

Your problem is likely not due to the farmland but to a certain animal that has found a liking to your crop garden - the hare 😉

Make sure your farm area is fenced in in a way that hares can't get in and that there's no grass covered blocks with tall grass growing on it inside (tall grass on farmland is okay).

I found a way to keep Peter Rabbit out of my garden, though I don't have a saw and can't make a proper fence.

I put ladders around my garden two blocks high.  One level might have worked.  I can still climb in and out (as well as monsters) but the hares can't get in!
