Shallots-Fall Planting vs Spring Planting
I started growing shallots last year. Bought a pound of French Red seed stock (spring planted last March) and harvested just shy of 6.5 pounds.
As a test, I planted about a dozen in the fall (and we did have a wicked cold winter) and the rest of what I had set aside for seed stock this spring (late March). I only lost one over the winter.
Here's the comparison today:
I'm somewhat surprised that the spring planted ones are as close in size to the fall planted ones as they are. They're catching up rapidly.
I'll be keeping track of the harvest - I'm so curious if there is any difference in size and number of shallots between the two.
