I am growing a few shallots in a raised bed and when do you know they are ready to harvest? Will the green tops turn brown kind of like an onion?

I was wondering the same thing, it is my first year for shallots, they look great so far. Funny looking tops!

As I recall from the ones I grew in Asheville, they do sorta die off at the tops and then I dig them. Rinse well, store in a shady place for a couple of weeks to dry out some. I put in a few here last fall and they are growing quite well now. Same for my fall planted garlic.

My garlic didn't do so hot, but I planted really late too. But there are fields close and when harvest is finished I will go and glean. They leave so much behind. I raise sweet onions in my raised beds too and they are looking great. Can't wait for those, mmmmmm!!

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
