This year, a bunch of my asparagus came up as skinny little things. This is an established bed and this is the first time I have seen so many little ones. Maybe they are new seedlings but I don't have very many large-sized ones this year.
I just let all the small ones grow up to leaf out and wonder if that was a mistake? Should I just cut them all back? There are only two of us here so we are getting enough large stalks but I won't have any to freeze.
