shallot harvest

The foliage is all laid down, mostly brown but some green remaining. The weather for the rest of the week is decidedly monsoon-like, and I won't be around to harvest next week. The only space I have for drying/storage is in the house. What would you do?

    I wouldn't leave them outside do you have a garage or shed but you could bring them in the house if it's cool somewhereimage

    Have 'em up and dry them somewhere.

  • There were mice in the garage at one point and we don't want them back! I tend to use the pantry which is a little better. Thanks, I'll bring them in when I can.
  • Good advice, I've brushed the slugs off and will try and remove the mud when it's dried

    hi i have lifted all my shallots and drying them currently in the utility at home however when there is a dry windy period out they go and they are just about there now.

    another week and they will be peeled and picked onions here they come absolutely fantastic last year never tasted better so hope there is a good follow on
