I have a couple plants that have only set a couple pods, they are almost full size now.  I've heard that harvesting the first pods early will help create more down the road.  I've never tried this because I always get plenty of pods, but this year has been rough with constant rain and lackluster growth so far.  Do you guys usually harvest the first pods before they mature?

I haven't heard of taking early pods, but i have heard of taking the early flowers so the plant focuses it's energy in stalk and limbs thus producing more pods.  Might be the same concept.

Harvesting one too early will lead to faster ripening of others but never heard about producing more.
