Both air and moisture are detrimental to all food storage, both in your fresh food section or your freezer. Leftovers in your fresh food section should be discarded after 3 days. In the freezer section they can last months depending on the food product.
It is nice for temporary storage to use items like tupper ware, but you can not get all of the air out of the container. It is better to leave the food product in the original bowl or place in a container where you can cover with plastic wrap, pushing down and making contact with the food product, getting rid of the air.
Your refrigerator temperature settings are critical. The fresh food section should be between 35-40 degrees F. and your freezer -2 to +2 degrees F.
Ok, lets freeze the asparagus. With a paper towel soak the outside moisture from the asparagus. Wrap it in plastic wrap ensuring there is no air in your package.
Do not put anything in your freezer or fresh food section directly in front of the air vents to avoid blocking air flow.
Asparagus can be frozen easily,clean,rinse with clear water,blanch then freeze.Best if thawed in fridge like you would do with meat or just throw it in your microwave in a steamer for 8 to 10 minutes depending on the amount of asparagus.I put about 1 lb in microwave frozen solid for 8 minutes and it comes out pretty good,adjust your times for your likeness.
The current Roundup formula effects the plants through absorption into the leaves. The easiest way is to simply wait for the asparagus to die back completely for the season before applying the herbicide. As the asparagus is dormant and without leaves the herbicide will not be absorbed and will not effect it.
