Anyone else dislike thinning?

I've been thinning my carrots and really dislike deciding who lives and who dies.  I don't mind the actual work, but I feel so bad for the carrots that aren't going to have a chance to mature. 

When you have a special needs child, it is like floating in the ocean. You will have highs when you ride the top of the wave and move forward and lows when the wave crashes over you and sucks you back. As you are riding a low wave of sadness, frustration & disappointment, just keep in mind the next wave will take you back up and move you forward once more.

I feel like that too.  I used to even have issues with pulling weeds.  Silly, huh?

just eat the ones you pull early or compost them. You'll feel better about it. You could also try planting fewer seeds to avoid having to thin.

It's true. A weed is just a plant out of place.
