We did not cut down our asparagus ferns when they got yellow,will we still get a crop of them?

This is our second year for having asparagus, what time of the year will we see new sprouts coming up ? I just read on Arcamax gardening that they need to be cut down in the fall.

You made a great mistake. The first year the fronds shouldn't be cut down.





I'm in zone 5, and mine isn't up yet. It should start next month.





Remember to only pick 1/3 of the crop this year, 2/3 next, and the following year pig out. I always leave a few fronds for the plant each year.
