Shame it isn't tasty. Tilling/hoeing/ "weeding" makes more. Much more.
My best luck in my veggie garden, last time I tried was using grass shears (pre weed-eater handheld horizontal snips) and skinny-bladed $10 hedge shears. Snipping at the tips of the foliage. Add to that (worn) hand held pruners to nip at the sprouting heads. Everyday there is more to cut. It's never ending. Peppers, tomatoes etc. rooted well and claimed some space...Less than ideal
I had a great harvest. It was an awful, ugly mess that could have done much better. I did not have asparagus.
Eh, I picked and ate pole beans supported by the JG. Beans were my least adversely affected in the later parts of the season's crop due to their "supporting cast".
There's a quote involving lemonade...
I'll subscribe to this thread to see what other have done with success?
