I have a little doohickey that dispenses one seed at a time. I plant ALL of my seeds at the "final thinning" interval, as I DON'T want to waste seeds, or waste time by thinning plants. If a seed fails to germinate, I simply plant another seed in the space.

I guess I don't love carrots enough


Carrots do not transplant well so replanting thinned plants in a second bed is unlikely to be productive.

Ice,

Ditto. I have one of those too and they work pretty well. I let a few scarlett nantes carrots go to see last year so right now my carrot bed is choked with carrots that badly need thinning--oh my aching back. :)

You could just do this: put a seed, dirt and compost into one of these from Amazon: http://a.co/g3jDTAf and then you would just plant the capsules.
