perfect answer. but with very small seeds it is hard to do such as carrot seeds. so if you dribble them slowly into a trench of sorts and thin when you can tell they are carrots or the plant you have planted. basically if you can identify the plant thin it to the appropriate spacing to grow the veggies intended.

because not all seeds will germinate and there for if you plant 2 in one space you will have at least one of the 2 germinate. if a seed isn't fertile it won't grow into a plant. the better the quality of seed you purchase the better the odds of most of the seeds germinating this also holds true for older seeds. some seeds stay viable for 6 mo others for 50 yrs it all depends on how strong the original plant was/is.

another thing that can happen is both seeds are strong and grow well. but you can possibly separate them being careful not to pull them both up and transplant one to another space thus getting more in your harvest.
