I've noticed new asparagus spears in my garden this week under the thick ferns that are still green. Would it hurt the roots to harvest these new spears now, in September or should I let them grow to promote root growth now through the first frost, or about a month from now in my area? I didn't plan for a summer/fall harvest by setting aside half the plot in the spring, then cutting the ferns in the summer to promote new spear growth. I harvested the whole plot all through the spring harvest season.

Raspberry Plant Disease

I've always had a healthy patch until this year. The canes looked vigorous with blossoms and fruit development. One by one, the canes began to die off until now only a few remain. I have both summer and fall bearing red raspberries. I'm hoping the root system remains intact and that there'll be new growth next year. Any suggestion on what I'll need to do to refurbish my patch? Thank you

My grapes developed dark spots on them early in their formation and continued through maturity. they seem to be only on the skin and can be scratched off although some of them seem to go through the entire skin
