Hi all! We just bought our first house and moved in a month ago-so naturally I was THRILLED when I started to plan my garden.

I have everything in the ground, and being in the south things sprouted VERY quick-the corn and the beans both that I planted last week came up in about three days, I'm anxious to see what my carrots and broccoli do-but I have questions about spacing some of it out.

For instance, I have the corn in two rows. I swear all of the seeds took and there is a TON of corn seedlings-if I don't pull every other or every few are they going to kill each other? Or will it be ok? I hate to have to pull the little suckers up but I just want to do whatever's going to be best!

I would pull some. You'll end up with a better crop if you do. Once I had carrots
too close togther and they ended up intertwining underground. It was crazy. Hard to pull up but it looked kinda cool. I know it's hard to thin them out though.

I thinned out my veggies to proper spacing, but not my herbs. I probably should have, but oh well...

I never thin my herbs either. It looks like a big bush back there. I love the look.
