If there's one thing we can grow it's shallots. Whatever else has failed, shallots have stuck with us every year. I'm rather partial to them for being so obliging - as well as liking them in cooking. So we've got two long rows this year, one of 'Jermor', and the other of 'Topper'. We put them in 2 weeks ago, as pictured, and this week they're already sprouting robust green shoots.
To the right of the shallots is our winter garlic crop. I wonder if we've planted too much. Unlike shallots, there's only so much garlic one family can eat. I imagine we'll be distributing our largesse to friends.
