Compounding the Work

When the row of beets finally started coming on strong, it needed to be thinned. Each beet seed is actually a compound seed, and can sprout multiple seedlings. Thinning helps to create enough room for the developing root. I didn’t do a great job thinning, but so far there are plenty of seedlings. Note to self to set seed much farther apart for the next succession planting.
