I have a prolific vegetable garden this year. With the rain and the
constant spreading of compost, things are looking mighty green. I
have a question, though. I have Blue Lake green beans, bush beans,
and I'd like to know when is the best time to pick them--in the
morning or the evening? I know not during the heat of the day because
their flavor will be flat. Does anyone know?
I vote for picking in the evening. Following your theory, the flavor
will be best in the morning, but the plants will be wet with dew. Best
not to pick when plants are wet, for fear of spreading diseases.
BTW, I don't find any difference with flavor based on time of picking.
Is your theory hypothetical or based on actual experience?
