Hi GG,

I have few questions.

1. I sowed 3beans seeds in a container, just in case. Now all the three has sprouted(no true leaves yet). I understand i have to thin to one per container. When do i do that and how do i select which one to cut as all three looks healthy. 


2.I have planted tomatoes and chilly in the seedling tray. Can i transplant once they have the true leaves? or should i wait a little longer?(like the one in your pic.?)


3. When should i start using fertilizers for all these plants? I used red soil+manure+cocopeat. I would like to use something organic. Will just goat manure do?

If GG is busy, can fellow readers help me? Thanks in advance.
