What a lot of shallots!

So been to the allotment to check on the greenhouse (a woeful tale! – a whole other blog in the making!). We have brought home our first glut and a lettuce. We are now the proud owners of a bag of shallots! Approx 200! Would love to say we had grown them but once again a fellow gardener has taken pity on us and donated them.  Our neighbours are a friendly bunch full of sage advice and free stuff! Some of the advice is conflicting but well meant! They did admit not all the shallots would be usable but what to do with them? How to store… So many questions?

   

   

The lettuce has been grown by Bob our plot neighbour in a cold greenhouse over the winter! Who knew! (Probably most experienced veg growers but new to us!)
