OK so 8 months later and the shallots leaves are still green. The onions are ready and some (but not all) of the shallots have bulbed so i am going to start to harvest them now anyway.
i pulled a few two or three weeks ago and tied them to a tomato cage to dry. Wrong technique. The leaves stayed pretty green but the bulbs became soft. More research. Oh. Shallots should be cured in a warm, ventillated but SHADY place. No wonder. Will try again.
Should i clip the green tops back before curing??
Here is my next batch to experiment with so you can see how green the leaves are.
Seems like i got yellow and pink shallots. Some of the pink ones have formed nice 1-2 inch bulbs (not pictured). Are these the ones i should save to replant?
