I'm not thrilled when I must thin my seedlings. It feels like I'm harming my children somehow. I know, that's a bit dramatic of me but still, it feels wrong to determine which plants will be allowed to live and which ones must die.
My husband would likely argue (and he would be right) that if I were to plant LESS in each pot, I wouldn't have to remove them. After all of these years of gardening, I'm just still so afraid that my seeds might not germinate, so I tend to plant too many per pot.
In a previous posting, I shared with you how easy it is to start your own tomato plants.
