The Joy of Harvest

For most home gardeners, this is the time of year we start to think about harvesting the plants that we have so lovingly cared for all summer. Timing is a key part of achieving the maximum quality of the plant, and harvest times vary depending on the part that you wish to use. As a general guideline, you want to gather the plants when they are at the peak of potency or are fully ripe. For example:

  • Flowers are usually best harvested just before the full bloom and in the mid or late morning following evaporation of the dew
  • Seeds should be gathered when they are dry and ripe, but before they fall from the plant on their own
  • Roots can be gathered in the late fall or early spring in either the early morning or late afternoon
  • Leaves should be gathered when they are tender and the plant is beginning to show new fall growth...
