Parsley is a bit slow in the beginning, but once it starts it will grow a lot of leaves fast.
You can start harvesting the leaves one by one in about 1 month from planting the pod, this way a pod may last upto 3 months max. If doing so, just cut whole leaf from the base (with the stem).
If one harvesting event is preferred, then the whole pod should be harvested at once in about 8 weeks after planting.
If some leaves turn yellow, feel free to cut them off - new leaves will grow soon from its growing point.
Parsley leaves should never be removed all at once if you want to harvest it gradually. For that just cut each leaf individually.
