Oniony things

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.
