Shallots are undemanding and require only occasional watering during particularly dry periods. However, rows should be weeded regularly. Harvest spring planted Shallots in August, a week or two after the leaves begin to turn yellow. Choose a dry day to loosen them from the ground with a fork. Leave them in their clumps on the soil surface for a day or two until they have fully dried in the sun. Once dry, remove the top foliage and store them in a well ventilated, dry position. There is no need to break rings of shallots apart until you need to use them. Shallots store exceptionally well and can often be stored in good condition for 6 months or more.
