Genocide in the Veggie Patch

I can't stand to thin plants. It's an emotional event. Which sprout must die? Which sprout will produce and be eaten later? There really needs to be some kind of therapy at the garden center. I thinned my beets and radishes. Poor babies. Plucked from the earth before they could realize their full potential. Now they lay quietly in the compost heap.

You don't have to thin if you plant like in the Square Foot Gardening way! I don't use it, but I do plant my seeds that way. No thinning. Your seeds last years that way, and they do last that long.
