Harvest the older outer leaves of vegetables like chard, beet greens, leaf lettuce, and parsley as they mature. Chard leaves are ready to pick when they are 8 to 10 inches long; lettuce leaves when they are 4 to 6 inches long; and parsley leaves when they are 3 to 5 inches long. Spinach is an exception to this rule. Use the whole spinach plant when the larger leaves are 4 to 6 inches long. Head lettuce can be harvested like leaf lettuce or allowed to form moderately firm heads which are harvested before seed stalks appear. Similarly, cabbage heads are ready to cut when they become solid.good luck.
