Thinning Broccoli Raab
New to the community and first time SFGer. I started with one 4X4 and then added a 1X4 alongside it because I had extra Mel's Mix. My question is about thinning broccoli raab (rapini). I planted it 9 to a square, and the seeds were incredibly small. I put a pinch of seeds in each hole - and I think they're ALL germinating. It's kind of hard to see which to thin since I'm not familiar with how broccoli raab looks as it grows - is each individual thin stem a seed that has germinated? It looks like there are at least 5-7 stems coming from each space where I sowed the seeds. Do I snip them now (I started them on June 16) or let them get a little bigger?
Second question - I planted a square of bush beans on the same day and none of them have germinated - is this normal? Everything else I planted from seed has sprouted.
I'm loving the SFG method - my favorite part is how easy it is to pull a little weed if I see one (I did use weed cloth - so I imagine they got there by the wind).
Thank you so much for your advice.
