First post here though I have been lurking around for some time.
I recently started several different vegetables from seed (I know I'm running a little behind). These are all started in 1x1 cells. From everything I read (skimmed), it was recommended to put "1 or more seeds per cell". Well I'm now wondering if I've overdone this. I wasn't expecting great results and for smaller seeds like peppers and tomatoes I put up to 4-5 seeds per cell. What I have now is 3-5 seedlings growing in each cell. I also have this 'problem' with all my plants (zucchini, cucumbers, melon, spinach, etc.)
Do I weed out all but 1 or 2 seedlings or let them go for a while and try to separate and transplant? I was concerned about the separating process doing more damage than good.
I have pretty much unlimited planting space and with the canning, freezing plans and between family and neighbors, I would like to save as many as possible but not at the risk of losing more than I may gain.
Apologies if this has been asked or discussed or is obvious and I'm having a dense moment, but after reading and searching for a while I couldn't find this specific question.
Thanks in advance and love the site.
