Will green seed pods 'mature' if plant is pulled out?
I am in a rush to clear my veggie garden for summer crops, and I still have an arugula plant not quite dead, but there are masses of seed pods still green and swollen on the stems. Can I pull out the plant, and turn it upside down in the garage to dry out to collect the seeds, or should I wait as I normally do for the plant to brown naturally? In the meantime the birds are eating the pods while still green!
Any thoughts? Thanks!
