Asparagus Patch

Asked May 4, 2016, 12:08 PM EDT

How do I know if my patch needs to be replanted? This year, almost all of the first spears are very thin - is that a sign?

If the asparagus spears remain spindly throughout the normal harvest period (April to mid-June), it may be wise to plant a new asparagus patch next spring.
