comment Chilli sprouts are too close together. Should I start culling them?
Yes it is inevitable that some will be this close. Personally I wait a bit longer before thinning - once the adult leaves appear. Agree about thinning too quickly. These have passed the first hurdle of germinating, but I find they can still easily die at this stage.

comment How can I prevent stones from rising to the soil surface each year?
If they are true flints (ie. as found in the English Chalk), then try splitting some (USE GOGGLES!). The original flints nucleated around something. This something varies but can often be something like a dead echinoid (sea urchin).

comment How can I prevent stones from rising to the soil surface each year?
It is a similar idea as shaking of muesli, but rain is the main active cause. Some suggest frost as well and that is possible (soil expands when it freezes due to the ground water), so you get repeated expansion/contraction cycles.
