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?
