Oh soo yummy!
My hubby gubby planted these shallots. That was his first 'gardening act' and he was super excited:) Well after that I adopted them and took care of them- showed em lota luvvv ! They grew quickly and the whole patch was green so quickly. They looked very pretty and lush!! I couldnt wait to chop em up and use them in my cooking:) They are fairly easy to grow and are soooo tasty when eaten fresh. Store bought ones dont do justice to it. I loved them in my fried rice that I made right away after I harvested em:)
- Shallots, like onions, thrive on well drained soil.
- I made holes and placed small shallot bulbs pointy end up. The tip of the bulb should be just above the surface of the ground. Placing the bulbs about (4-6") apart would give them enough room to grow well
- I watered the plants twice a day and removed the weeds faithfully. We have a bird feeder nearby and lotsa birds visit us so there were many weeds. Thats all you need to do to grow good shallots:)
