This is the one part of gardening I do not like, not even a little bit--thinning seedlings. The basil and marjoram seedlings came up thickly, even though I mixed the seed with fine sand and tried very hard to plant thinly. Today I took the tweezers and thinned out the seedlings--throwing away about as many as stayed in the starting cells. I know it has to be done, but I don't like it! I think I'll go have a good cry and a glass of wine for consolation.
