A lot of use use this :
and this seems to be the best price. One the other hand, how big/public
an operation are you? With spears you will never be exact, so you could
just be sure to be a little generous (and maybe take your scale to
another grower and compare weights with their legal scale), and get by.
You have to sell a good bit of asparagus to pay for this. Don't know
how much other you grow and sell that would also benefit from a scale.
