Should I tame my asparagus or let it run wild?

Q: My asparagus is now at the end of the second year. I picked a few and it has been going wild ever since. My question is what do i do with it? Just let it die back on its own, or do I cut at ground level for winter? I am on the southern coast in Langlois.
