I have a hard time thinning seedlings, which is a particular problem because I also have an overseeding issue.
Lettuce is one thing, beets are another. Beets can’t be beets if they’re too bunched up together.
So I’m taking pictures and you’re here with me, lending moral support in absentia.
Here’s the before, obviously too close, messy, and some lettuce seeds have washed over from a neighboring area and taken root:
The seed packet says thin to from 2 to 4 inches apart. Here we go. It’s not as tough as I thought. The worst is when the strongest, biggest sprouts are right next to each other, and the little puny one is in the right spot.
It’s also hard taking out the lettuce, even though I know they’ll crowd the beets and not look as neat, later. I like messy, but I also like neat sometimes.
Thanks for walking me through it. Now for the chard.
