How big are they Zoomer - it's all very well to say 'Pick them and eat them now' but if they've only got say 4 leaves, that's a bit of a waste.
I'm growing Little Gem in a raised bed. I thinned them out when they were tiny - transplanting the thinned seedlings so they're a little bit behind the first row.
Now they need thinning again so we'll be having salad with the thinnings any day now - I shall be thinning them to about 6" apart and I'll leave the rest to form lovely firm hearts.
