With head-mounted flashlights and boots deep in the mud, a firefly-like party of laborers in northern Spain harvest precious asparagus shoots once night falls. Dubbed “white gold” because of their colour and the high price they fetch in markets and restaurants around the world, the stringy delicacies are planted every fall and picked each year between April and June.
