Looking at these tiny seedling I didn't want to do it. After all, these guys had grown from seeds, beating impossible odds to even exist. And yet, one has to thin them out. Failure to do so hurts all the plants. (At least this is what I'm told.)
So yeah, it pained me to snip some of these guys. But I knew I had to do it.
OK little guy, you've got the space all to yourself. Now grow!
