Asparagus

What do I do with new spears that emerge in early October? I cut the ferns back to ground level about 10 days ago and now new spears are shooting up rapidly. These plants were planted 2015 from a tray of established ones that said they should produce harvest crops in 2 years (2016?).

Mystery pasture weed.

I would like to identify this weed that grows in the shady to partly shady parts of my pasture. It gets to 7 ft tall and has 4 fins that go all the way down the tall stem. The plant is herbatious, and has yellow daisy like flowers on it when it blooms in the late summer.

Worms missing

I have added large amounts of biomass and compost to my garden which I considered compact clay here in the foothills of NC; and kept the pH at near neutral, rotated crops and avoided ground insecticides for 5 years. I have tilled in spring and fall, the only negative aspect I can think of. Yet I seldom find any earth worms!! I use cover crops in the win winter. What gives?
