While shopping at Walmart with friends, one of them alerted me to a display that had different varieties of shallots prepackaged.  I picked two varieties and planted them the next day.  Out of eighteen, thirteen are growing, some better than others.  This time I followed directions and planted them two inches below the ground.  Now I can compare which way is best.

The picture below is a shallot that was too small to pull last fall.  It made it through the winter and is growing big enough to pick this time.  I do plan to plant some this fall for an early summer harvest.

This sunset was just too beautiful not to share.
