Growing Asparagus

On asparagus - I've just purchased one year old crowns (7 in total). What kind of crop could I expect next year? How many spears does each crown produce?

I have read so many different things about what to expect. I planted 12 mth old crowns and last year I picked for about 4-5 weeks from 3 plants - I feel I could have picked them for 3 mths. I had massive ferns early this year. I picked about 70-80 spears last year in the 4-5 weeks. You probably have colder weather.
