Detect when the player is mining/ herbing?

My add-on absolutely needs to also remind players if they haven't been to their garrison's mine/ herb garden yet today, and I figure that the best I can actually do is detect when the player has done some mining/ herbing (yes, it is a verb) while inside the garrison zone.
The best way I came up with is checking the combat log to see when the player finishes casting the mine/ herb spell and then disabling the reminder for this toon on this date, but I'm sure that as usual there's probably a better way that hasn't occurred to me, so... does anyone know how I could improve the above idea?

It marks a tracking quest as complete the first time you mine or herb in your garrison, for me it was quest 36799 which you can check via IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(36799).

I think it only completes one regardless of what you loot, because I didn't see a separate quest when I struck a mining node after herbing.

Is that tracking quest a daily thing though? If so then I think it's the best solution I could ask for

It's a daily, it should tell you whether a character has looted an herb or mining node in their garrison when they log in.

Well, that's the hack to magically solve all my problems then. Thanks!
