Today I dug and braided 21 shallots. We’ve been eating our own sweet onions since early summer and still have four left. The hope is these shallots get us part of the way into winter. Next year I’ll plant more. They took very little space and grew much better on the first try than real onions ever have for me across multiple years attempting them. We should be able to bump up to eating our own onions (or shallots anyway) pretty much year round assuming I plant a really good storage variety.
