Asparagus-A Yakima Valley Rite of Spring
The 2011 asparagus harvest is running late in the valley this year due to a cold, wet spring. It won't be long until we'll be consuming lugs of the stuff fresh, canning it, freezing it and more. Last year, my wife and crew pickled about 75 quarts of the stuff.
