thinning the garden

dirty hand holding beet greens

Since planting my parents’ vegetable garden, I’ve been weeding and thinning it, as well as harvesting the vegetables as they become ready. This is a handful of beet seedlings that I pulled up to thin out the beet rows. I steamed them and ate them for my supper the next night.

Have you ever thinned a garden? Did you feel guilty pulling up perfectly good plants in order to let their neighbours grow better?

Would you grow beets if you grew a vegetable garden?
