These are the shallots we pulled up and cured out in the sun today. We have never cured shallots in the sun before so I hope it works.
An odd thing happens with shallots. They grow more shallots on the top of the plant. We picked those little bulb sets off and popped them in some water to replant. It is a never ending supply of shallots.
These guys are expensive in the store but are even easier to grow then onions. You can use the tops in place of green onions as well. Try them out.
Willows whiten, aspens quiver,
The sunbeam-showers break and quiver
In the stream that runneth ever
By the island in the river,
Flowing down to Camelot.
Four gray walls and four gray towers
Overlook a space of flowers,
And the silent isle imbowers
The Lady of Shalott.
