Thin the Veggie Seedlings
When the radish seedlings reach about 2 inches tall, thin them to 1 to 2 inches apart. Thin the carrot seedlings to about 2 inches apart when they reach the same size. In each case, use scissors to snip off the excess seedlings right at the soil level instead of pulling them out so you don't disturb the remaining seedlings.
Care for the Plants
Continue to water regularly, keeping the potting soil evenly moist but not soggy. If the potting soil you used does not include fertilizer, give your veggies a nutrient boost with a dose or two of a liquid organic fertilizer; apply it according to the directions on the label.
Harvest the Veggies
Begin harvesting the radishes and then the carrots when their roots swell to at least 1 inch across.
