|So I think I'm clear on how to proceed but I wanted to drop this in the forum just to check.
I planted these from seeds about 2 years ago. Originally they were in some boxes but I transplanted them about 6 weeks ago to the new raised bed.
They are starting to produce thin but nice looking shoots.
My plan is to not harvest anything this year and let it go. I will put in some organic fertilizer in a month or so.
Starting next year I'll harvest what I can and then after the harvest trim it all down to about 1 to 2 inches above the surface.
That last part is the real question for me. I'm pretty sure that after a harvest you trim is all down to the ground.
Anyway, it is exciting to see the sprouts now.

|You were doing good until you got to cutting the ferns down after harvest. The ferns are necessary to to gather and store energy in the roots. The ferns need to grow to maturity, cut them down after they go dormant in the fall/winter.|
