snip the extra plants after they sprout? I'm just curious. I usually wait till all of them sprout, then snip all but the largest one. I don't usually wait for the true leaves to do this. When do you usually snip?

After true leaves emerge
41 years a gardener and going strong with SFG.
There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance. ~ Henry David Thoreau

+1. Sometimes I can't bare to thin them out. Case in point are my rattlesnake beans. Rather than thin them out I just built new trellises.

I HATE thinning out seedlings. I did it ruthlessly this season though. However, in an experience similar to GooseGirl's, I have two Anaheim chiles growing side-by-side and they are growing fine (and producing bountifully).
