Landrace: locally-adapted diversity

I'm pretty much a culling maniac... It's common for me to cull as many as half of seedlings right after they germinate. In the field I cull perhaps 10% of most crops within a week or two of sprouting. It seems to me like weak seedlings grow up to be weak plants.

So that pecan seedling got yanked out... The growing tip had also died back during the growing season and the plant sent out a new shoot. But the root was not dead, and is still in the ground waiting to grow.
