Why does my asparagus plant come up and immediately go to seed? They are very thin and weedy looking.

    This indicates that they are under stress. Stress can come in many forms, from too little water to too little nutrients to pests on the plant. I would take a close look at the bed they are growing in and see if you can come up with some ideas on what may be causing their stress and working to correct it.
