My wife just popped into my office with two of her recently purchased starts, waiting to get planted into our SFG.  She asked me to ask you guys....  "can she separate these starts into multiple starts and plant them in the SFG"  The green stalks are Fennel and the other are beets.   

Thanks, 
Alan

Yes, and no.  The Fennel can be gently pulled apart and planted separately. Beets, however, do not transplant well. Root crops like to be left alone just where they germinated. However, the good new is that I have been very successful in growing "clumps" of beets - they tend to push one another aside to make room for their roots, and the bigger ones can be pulled for eating to allow the smaller ones to continue growing.  When you plant a beet "seed" you are actually planting 4 or 5 seeds that are inside that multi-germ seed you planted.
