@rek no I had no idea you could do that! I just threw them in the compost

@kyle Oh yea you can! I read about it a few times, but its so rare to find carrots with the tops still on. Try it next time :)!

@kyle what's thinning? making room for the other veggies of the same sort to grow?

@cblgh Yeah, they were pretty crowded. If I don't remove some, then everything will be stunted, because they're all competing too closely for sunlight. Also fungus, mold and pests become more of a problem because of the decrease in airflow and sunlight which should naturally deter those kinds of things.
