When harvesting, at least leafy plants such as lettuces and herbs, the rule of thumb seems to be to harvest from the outside first and only about a third of the plant. From observation we can see that these types of plants seem to grow from the inside out, which is why one harvests from the outside first. The more mature leaves are on the outside. The remaining leaves are left to mature and to photosynthesize for the plant, so it can continue to get a healthy does of sunlight to grow. What have you observed from the pictures we have shared?
