3rd year asparagus picking

Never pick beyond the longest day.  I don't know if this applies to young asparagus plants like yours, but it does to older ones.

Make sure to spread lots of seeds where you do want them later in the year.

Don't take  off 2 foot, they will just be ugly.  Get rid of them if you can. But it does depend on their height.

Can anyone tell me what this plant is???

And what about foxgloves?  There are many, many poisonous plants, but vanishingly few cases of poisoning.

Don't cut it and take it indoors.  It smells of cat w**.

Magnolias don't like to be pruned.  They are apt to produce a lot of unproductive shoots.

Get picking on that Purple Sprouting or it will bolt too.
