Hi, I have had spotty germination in my garden this year (distastrous year for beans - how can that happen?) and I have clumps of beets doing quite well, and then spaces where there are none. It is the same for the carrots. They are both about 6 inches high, and I was wondering if anyone had any success with digging the plants out carefully and replanting them. This way I could grow everything instead of just thinning them. thanks, Heidi ps I am in the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island, and we have really sandy soil.
