Met a guy in valencia on sunday morning at the market selling fresh asparagus. Took a trip up to apolong today to have a look at his operation. Was surprised at how much he grows up there. Its not the woody old stuff from the supermarkets,this stuff can be eaten raw as so tender. He can be found at the end of the sunday vegtable market near the elementary school or call ricky on 09087040603 I also noticed somebody next door had set up a small mushroom farm growing oyster mushrooms.
