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!!
