Plan for a Bumper Yield of Shallots
“When it comes to size, the shallot is a runt compared to the mighty onion, but then size isn’t everything! Shallots are handy if you only have a couple of mouths to feed and they’re quicker to cook than onions. But since they’re so diminutive, it’s well worth taking steps to ensure your shallots are primed to be as productive as possible.”
Shallots are a worthwhile investment in the garden. Since shallots tend to be on the pricey side in the grocery store, I don’t mind dedicating space to them in my garden bed. Plus, unlike it’s cousin the onion, you get a much higher yield of shallots per bulb than you do onions. Check out this post by growveg.com, and you’ll soon be planting and gathering plenty of shallots in your own garden!
