The red shallots are from our garden. They were very easy to grow. I only planted a few and got good bulbs off each piece I planted. I didn't water them once. The last two photos are garlic from Garden Dreams before and after digging. The in-between stage not pictured is that all the foliage browned and died back, a surefire sign that it is time to dig your garlic. You get quite a bit from a small space and it is easy to dig with a spading fork. Then you just shake off the dirt and eat or lay on screens or hang to dry out and cure for storage.
