quick gardening question for folks...

For you gardening smarties:

If I planted two corn seeds in every hole, same with squash, melon, and just about all seeds sprout, do I have to kill one of the paired plants 'cause they're now so close it's nutty?

I HATE thinning, but if you tell me I must, I will steel myself.

  1. How about "probably." If for no other reason than to limit plant stress and the subsequent fungal / insect infestations.

    Increasing the air flow between plants also aids in prevention against fungal outbreaks.

    I usually overplant a bit (maybe 30%), assuming that 25% or so may die. And if they don't (assuming perfect growing conditions), then maybe not kill any.
