The answer to your question depends on how old the plants are. If they are newly planted, they should not be harvested at all. The second growing season they can be harvested for 1 to 3 weeks. Succeeding years they can be harvested for 8 to 10 weeks. Snap the stalks instead of cutting them.

We have vegetable growing information in this UW Extension publication: http://www.wyoextension.org/agpubs/pubs/B1115.pdf
