* shallots

Posted on July 23rd, 2011 by maitreya. Filed under Home and Garden.

I dug up my shallots last week and they’re now hanging out on the back patio to cure.  They look great! I was a little worried because they sent up scapes in the spring, and the internet claimed that wasn’t a good sign.

This is the yield off one bulb planted last fall (well, plus one more that went into a marinade last night).  I’m harvesting the other bulb cluster today.


I have to say, the garlic and shallots were the easiest and most trouble-free thing I’ve grown so far.  They were also a welcome bit of green in the garden over the winter, not to mention tasty!  I’m totally going to plant a few more varieties this fall.
