In early June we planted a few rows of shallot sets. In July, in a fit of something-or-other, my son decided to harvest them. All of them. The sets had divided into bunches, but few of them had bulbed out.
Needless to say, they were almost all far too small to use as anything other than sets. We cured them, and they've since been sitting in the basement, awaiting their fate.
Question is - can I plant shallots in the fall in a cold-winter area like mine? If not, will the cured shallots be of any use for planting *next* spring?
