We have planted collards. When should we harvest, how do you pick? After picking do you pull the plant?
I leave about 1/4 of the leaves (pulling the outside leaves) and hill up soil around the base of the plant. if the plant gets too tall, just bend over and bury the stem. It will keep producing. If you have never tried steaming your collards with a little Italian dressing it is awesome. We won't eat them any other way now. Happy harvesting.
