Just moved into a new home. Great asparagus bed but it is completely overgrown with weeds and is 6-7 feet tall. What do I need to do to get it back in shape??

You may need to pull as much of it by hand as you can. There are some grass/weed selective herbicides available that can kill it in asparagus, but there are no organic solutions other than hand pulling. The asparagus will also need to be cut back this fall.
