Just wondering who picks and when you start picking. For some great reason I get a kick out of it. Last year was more of a learning opportunity and I was fairly discouraged. However, I stuck with it and managed to map out/mark on a GPS over 300 areas with plants on different road around my house...Hoping this is the ticket.

All the spots I pick wild asparagus have started to go to seed.  It's been so dry here and overall too warm.  The stuff in my backyard grew 2 feet in about 2 days.  Also I noticed some small red bugs on some of the stalks.  Anyone know how to eradicate those?  Not sure if those are asparagus beetles, or something else.

Driving home from the store yesterday I went the back way got 20 stalks. Don't do this often but will try more often. Most of the stalks were nice and thick.

I took another walk today and found 16 spears. As I was checking out a patch I heard a rustling sound and about 5' away out popped a hen turkey. After I cut what I wanted I checked where she came from and found the nest with a dozen eggs in it. I left her alone as she didn't run far.
