When to stop picking to save seed?
I planted Emerite this year on suggestion from the forums here. I think I would have been quite pleased with them had we not had such a cold and late spring as well as major hail damage this summer. The plants are still producing, though not as well as I think they would have. I'd like to save some seed and try again next year.
My question is, how long before my last frost date should I stop picking so the remaining pods/seeds can mature for seed? I'm not sure how long maturity takes since I've only ever grown for snaps. We can get frost mid-September or it can hold off another month... we never know here in Saskatchewan.
