2. Snip leaves of overly vigorous greens (some mustards, for instance) that are overtaking other types in the bed.

Cut these plants back to 1-2 inches above the soil. By the time they regrow, the other greens will have caught up in size.

3. Harvest when leaves are 4-5 inches long.

Use scissors to shear part or all of the bed, cutting foliage to 1-2 inches above the soil level.

4. Fertilize plants lightly with fish emulsion solution after cutting them back; continue watering.

Plants will put out new leaves, ready to harvest again within one to two weeks.
