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!
