Most herbs are at their most potent when harvested in the morning. Is that true of poison ivy, too? I have a *lot* of it, and I'm wondering whether I'm better off waiting for the evening hours to pull it, instead of taking advantage of the cooler early mornings? It has only caused me minor reactions so far, but I wear gloves and always wash up frequently when handling it. Thanks for any advice!
