If you are still producing spears you can pick them. If the full crop has gone to seed it could reduce next years crop if you cut down all of the ferns. I have placed a link below to an article in growing Asparugus. http://www.extension.umn.edu/garden/yard-garden/vegetables/growing-asparagus-in-minnesota-home-gardens/#harvesting
