Not sure what you mean by harvesting - that sort of implies you're going to use the seeds for something.
If the flowers have seed formed inside them (in the black centres) then you can cut them off and take the seeds, or you can just lay the heads somewhere for the birds to eat. Usually the seed is formed when the petals start to look old and tired!
