Sometimes it pays to be impatient. Most of the time it doesn’t. One of the best things about our vegetable project is that we can see the plants at different stages. Where as before we were limited to what was for sale, now we can watch a plant grow in all of it’s stages and taste it along the way. These shallots have been in the ground forever and I pulled some up just to see what was happening below the ground. Wow, I will always harvest them this size. The flavor is so balanced, which makes them extremely versatile. Next year I plant 10 times as many I I did this year.
