Thinning out carrots

Whether grown in beds or in containers, broadcast or seed drilled, carrots grow too closely together and need 'thinning'. Fingers go through the base of the foliage and pull out plants that are too close to their neighbours. The plants left in the soil will then grow on to make big strong carrots that can be eaten later in the season.
The 'thinnings' are sweet and tasty and just great to eat now!
