gonna plant some this year. i'm thinking 20 plants is that alot or not enough.
Same here. I have 30 plants around 15 years old. You shouldn't pick anything that isn't thicker than a pencil no matter how old the plants are. I let the dead stalks in the garden over winter. They blow full of leaves in the fall & protects the plants roots through winter. Then clean off in Febuary & give a good layer of compost or manure.Borden811 said:It depends on how much you like it, and how many people are eating it. Our family of four can eat it 3 or 4 times a week, and we can keep 30-40 plants eaten down pretty well. It does grow pretty quickly on those warm late spring nights after a decent rain though.
