asparagus has popped up on some land I purchased
I have noticed some thick healthy shoots popping up and lots of very thin and short ferns like the picture you have on the propogation part of your web site. I dont know how old the plants are or the boundry but there are lots of weeds grasses and vines. I havent harvested any because I want to try and make it productive for the future. Im worried about getting rid of the weeds because of the small stalks and other shoots may pop up somewhere I havent seen any yet. will the small ferns turn into productive plants, are they a site of a crown? is it worth trying to save this plot or should I start over with fresh plants?

It is likely that this is a very old patch. These will become unproductive over time. I would recommend starting a fresh patch of a known male variety, as these tend to be more productive. You can still harvest some out of this old patch, but I would consider it ornamental at this point.
