Once these seedlings have started to grow their first "real" set of leaves, we will have to make the difficult decision to pull some of the seedlings. This thinning process, though heart breaking, is important to ensure the health of the surviving plants. It is possible - though not always successful - to replant the little seedlings into another pot, instead of just composting them. But this is especially difficult if the two seedlings are really close to each other, sometimes it is just safer to pinch out one, in order to save the other.
