  3. Harvest established asparagus plants in the spring. Cut spears off at the ground when they’re as thick as a pencil or about eight inches tall.
  4. Take your head of broccoli to the table when it’s four to six inches in diameter. It’ll taste best if harvested before buds start to flower, which is typically at 55 to 60 days.
  5. Sow carrot seeds in early spring. Plant a new crop every few weeks for a continuous harvest. It’ll be about 55 to 80 days until you can take a bite.
  6. Pick Brussels sprouts when they’re about one inch in diameter and before the leaves turn yellow, about 90 days after planting.
  7. Be sure to do some research on the type of cucumbers you’re growing. Depending on variety, it can take from 50 to 100 days for them to be ready for harvest.
