When you thinning out vegetables, you can eat some of them too. I always
sow much more seeds in the cabbage and lettuce family. I add them to my
meal each time I need to thin them out.
I had help a charity nursery to thin out carrot, those 1" long carrots could
be added to salad. However, you must remember not to let any leaves from
carrot on the ground and better cover them afterward as soon as possible
since carrot fly can smell the scent of carrot from several miles away.
Hope it can help,
