Harvest regularly to harvest more! - 01. July 2021
It's not necessarily intuitive, but a regular harvest causes plants to produce new fruits. The ultimate goal for a plant is to produce seeds and, therefore, to reproduce. If ripe fruits are left on the plant, they send signals that reduce the formation of new flowers. So, we advise you to check your crops regularly (2-3 times a week) and to harvest all the fruits. This is particularly advisable for peas, beans, courgettes, cucumbers or even tomatoes and aubergines. Just 1-2 "forgotten” well-hidden fruits can encourage the plant to stop producing new flowers.
