baby chard

I didn't know it was possible but read in one of my gardening books recently that when thinning chard and beets you can simply transplant the ones that get pulled out, into a new spot. Only half my packet-seed Chard has grown, and all the saved seed row, so I tried it. Pulled a few out of the clusters from the saved-seed row, and tucked them into blank spaces in the other row. A few days later and they're looking just fine!
