    Most likely weather related.

    My crop was light this year, they were four years old (I'm in NY). I'm guessing it is weather related too. What I have read is they want their own dedicated bed, no weeds, no competing plants, very clean soil, and when you cut you should cut only one out of every third spear and leave the rest.

    maybe they will come out later, northern PA doesn't usually come up till mid May.
