Is there a herbicide such as 2-4D that I can use to control thistles and other broadleafs in my asparagus garden?

Herbicide use in vegetable gardens is not recommended. The preferred method of weed control is hand removal. There are also numerous prevention methods such as mulching that can be beneficial. Below are two links with information on weed control. The second link gives multiple non chemical prevention methods. https://extension.umn.edu/planting-and-growing-guides/controlling-weeds-home-gardens#corn-gluten-meal-879562 http://cceoneida.com/resources/weed-control-for-vegetable-gardens
