asparagus and garlic

the asparagus plant in the first photo has put out a third spear ( second photo ) and the same goes for the plant in the third and fourth photos...there are a few pieces of information contained in that...first the drainage in the bed is, so far, good and the plants are having no trouble expanding their root systems and handling precipitation...second, that the root systems are robust enough that the plants can expend the energy to form additional spears, and third, the new spears will 'fern' and continue feeding the roots in a positive feedback cycle...i am pleased to find a perennial that is adapting to the garden this well and i am hoping for a very productive bed...the bottom photo is of an elegant garlic plant in its heyday...look quick, they will be done soon.
