Is that a vicious title or what? Actually, I’ve decided eating seedlings is the kindest thing to do.
The hardest part of gardening, in my opinion, has to be thinning seedlings. You spend a week or more, wishing, hoping and praying that your seeds germinate and grow. Then they do! Then you have to wipe out a sizable portion of them because there are always too many or none at all, nothing in between. They need to be spaced properly or they won’t grow but MY GOD, I don’t want to decide which ones have to go. I want to nurture them but in order to do that I have to ruthlessly pick which ones get to live. Yeesh!
The other thing that bothered me is that it seemed so wasteful to just toss them. So, I decided to eat them! Now, I prefer to think of them as sprouts, instead of my victims and they are delicious!
So, how is your garden growing this year?
