After you've transplanted your seedlings to the growing shelf. Each pod should be thinned to 1 - 2 seedlings. To do this pull out the excess seedlings using a pair of tweezers or your fingers gently.
Grab each plant at the base, make a fist, and cut across above the fist. After harvesting, remove any plant debris that has fallen on the tray. Thyme can also be harvested by individual stems. When doing so, harvest the largest stems first by cutting about 1” above the stem base.
