Summer asparagus

I’ve had asparagus spears show up periodically in late summer. Can these be harvested without any detriment to long term plant health? As you probably know spears are cold sensitive and I find them also easily damaged by hail.

I have hundreds of big plants in my yard and groundcovers all over and I use a lot of compost and try to be organic. I have a lot of earthworms. Is it allright to use an organic liquid fertilizer as a root drench in the spring and fall for my fertilization program rather than a powdered organic fertilizer that needs to be scratched in the soil around each perennial plant, shrub, or tree?

Shriveled blossoms on gladiola

Gladiola grew normally until blossom time when the buds began to shrivel. Is the problem in the bulbs or in the soil? Solution? Thank you.

Worms in my Raspberries

I am finding 1/4" white tiny worms in many of my raspberries. I have started picking them as they start to ripen in hopes that the worms will not be a problem when they are ripe. I don't know how they have been infested. Do you know what what is causing this? Is it due to our weather this season? If it's cultural, is there anything I can do to prevent this another season. I have been throwing overripe berries with worms on the ground. Is this ok or is this a bad practice. I have Fall Gold growing next to my red berries and it doesn't seem that the worms are a problem with them. Will freezing the berries kill the worms and make them edible? If I eat fresh berries and happen to get a worm, can they cause problems?

Are sickle mowers like Rouse making a come back to reduce the chances of blister beedles and weevils being compressed into the alfalfa through conditioner rolls? I always used haybine or diskbine type of equipment in Western South Dakota without a problem but blister beedles are starting to show up in the area. What is the best way to cut alfalfa now days to reduces the chances the beedles don't get into your hay? Alot of our hay goes for horse use and the beedles are so toxic to horses.
