If there is one thing I am terrible at, it is thinning plants. Radishes, chamomile, beets….no matter what I grow I have a really hard time thinning the plants. When you plant seeds and a majority of them germinate, you are left with too many plants for any of them to grow big and healthy.
Sure enough, I waited too long to thin the leeks. But ah well, they can stay in the garden until late October/early November so no big deal. We finally got out there and thinned them out. Which left us with a nice little bunch of tasty baby leek sprouts for dinner!
