Home canning

I've just started canning vegs, so far pickling only, and like to understand the reason for things. Why do we wait 5-6 weeks before using -- is it just for the flavours to develop? I'd love to know now if I like the proportions of ingredients because in 5-6 weeks, asparagus season will be over.
