Once the baby kale reaches maturity, harvest weekly to avoid the kale from bolting*. If the kale begins to bolt, a tall thick stem will develop and want to flower. Harvest!!
Farmers harvest their salad greens in the morning when the leaves have high water content; harvest your AVA salad greens after the pump has run for the crunchiest lettuce. Use the cut-and-come-again harvesting technique for continued harvests around 25-30 days or for a continual harvest, pick the outer leaves around 25 days and allow the inner leaves to keep growing. Watch our "Harvesting Salad Greens" video to make sure you're cutting your lettuce correctly or else it may not grow back properly. We recommend not harvesting more than 3 times, as your lettuce will become more bitter in flavour.
