how do you measure 1 cup of raw vegetables (ie: asparagus or carrots)?

Click here to see pictures of what counts as a cup of fruit or veggies. The guide shows that 2 medium whole carrots count as a cup. Although asparagus is not shown, the guide indicates that 2 stalks of celery counts as a cup. Depending on the size of the asparagus, you could estimate how many stalks of asparagus compare to 2 stalks of celery, or as a one-time experiment, see how many stalks of cut asparagus (1-2 inch pieces) fit into a measuring cup.
