Thinning-out is also important among those "winter-chores" to make my vegetables like spinach and pak-chois bigger. Today I thinned them out expecting future's bumper harvest. Usually, I thinned out my spinach and pak-choy with making about 5cm space ( about 2inch ) between two sprouts

I forget thinning out my daikon radishes when they were young sprouts so my gardening ridge for them are so crowded with grown daikon radishes like the photo shown below. Making daikon roots bigger and longer requires more space but my daikon radishes have been forced to grow in the "limited space".
Eventually, most of my "grown daikons "are much shorter than ones I harvested last season.
I would like to show a good example. One of other gardeners have grown big and long daikon radishes since he thinned them out properly with making enough space between two daikons. He has about 10cm space between them as the photo below shows.
