when to harvest plants

Zone Fredericksburg Va | Anonymous added on April 28, 2016 | Answered

How do you know which specific plants are ready for picking? I just started my own garden. There are some plants that I am unsure when they are ready. I have basil, parsley, tomatoes, peppers, onions, garlic, peas, cucumbers, and carrots.

Basil you pick the leaves or stem with a few big leaves on them that's it, don't worry about picking the leaves or stem it makes the plant busier and stronger. Don't pick leaves to often or your plant will die.

The tomatoes plant depending on which tomatoe plant you bought will let you know how long it will take to harvest. I personally like the black cherry tomatoe because it small and dosen't take long to grow.
