Onions, Shallots and Garlic harvested and laid out to dry., originally uploaded by Campobello Island.
I'm so pleased with the success that I've had this year growing Onions, Shallots and Garlic. I have never been able to grow onions of any size before and I've tried many times. This year a friend who is a master gardener told me not to plant onion sets but to start my onions from seed in the house . He recommended starting them in February, I got a little carried away and started them under lights in mid January and the result has been amazing. I harvested them all this morning and laid them out on my front deck to dry in the sun. There is a good crop of Shallots too also grown from seed and some small garlic grown from garlic cloves. I didn't plant the garlic until late spring and I think they would be larger if I planted them in the fall so that is my plan for this year.
