(someone) harvests (a crop)

After a crop (like vegetables, wheat, cotton, tobacco, etc.) finishes growing, you "harvest" it. That means to pick or collect it.

Wheat is harvested in mid-autumn.

"Harvesting" specifically means collecting a large amount at once. So if you just pick a few vegetables from a garden at a time, it's not called "harvesting".
