Technically, maybe. But since you've got to let them get used to your soil and over transplant shock, you may not be able to snag a few spears this year anyway. Last year I planted 1yo crowns, so this year they'll be 2yo (but their 3rd season I guess?), and I might get a light harvest. The year after that, when they're going into their 4th season I should be able to harvest.
And most folks say you can get 1-4lbs of asparagus from each plant. Um, yeah, if I get that much from mine, I'll be having an "asparagus for sale" sign out front when we get sick of 'em (I planted 114 or 116 crowns last year).
