Any sign of pink and I pick them. Takes stress off my bushes when they are loaded like they are this year.
good point
still have about 500' of mullet net that we have put over the plants to keep birds off before but now just pick them when they start to turn and place them on a window seal to ripen in the sun .

here's an update on mine:
english pea vines removed. gonna till next week in that row and start some collard seeds. i usually just sprinkle the seeds in a 10in. deep furrow and gradually cover them with dirt as they grow.
picked a mess of bl. eye, lady peas are coming on strong. my peppers seemed to have started more growth than fruit...too much nitro. squash are on their last crop...probably pull those vines next week. the tomatoes are loaded. picked 2doz. this morning. blue lake is starting to come on. picked a mess this am.

and, yes, water in the am for about 2hrs.

Haven't seen any horn worms this year but I'm covered up with stink bugs
have nether of them so far . I do not like using poisons in my garden and had a big group of stink bugs one year . I thought about a quick spay of raid on them but my daughter had some cheap perfume so I sprayed them with that and they fell to the ground kicking and spinning around. they ether died or left smelling better
