Spring Asparagus Miracle

I put in six asparagus plants last year.  Despite the best efforts of the chooks, I have three plants STILL ALIVE. (Yes, miracles do happen).
Look! Look!!
And now they're even starting to produce spears that are big enough to eat.

This can't be right.

A miracle, indeed.  I hope you get at least a plateful!!

After reading your post I rushed outside to berate my asparagus only to find I had a spear too.  I put 4 plants in 2 years ago but only one survived.  This will be the first year I can harvest as they were 2nd year crowns when I put them in.  Won't be sharing!
