August 2 column: Harvest

Here is a link to my column in today’s edition of The Spokesman-Review: Enjoying the harvest means knowing the signs. This one is a guide to knowing when to harvest veggies.

While that might sound easy, it can be confusing to beginning and seasoned gardeners alike. When you time the harvest perfectly, your veggies will be at the peak of perfection and, in case of vegetables you’ll be storing, they’ll last a lot longer for you. In my column, I wrote about some of the most commonly grown vegetables. I hope you’ll find it interesting and perhaps keep it as a reference.

Do you have any tips on harvesting veggies? I’d love to share them with other readers. Just comment on this post or drop me a note at Thank you!
