I harvested my shallots and garlic today, they looked so pathetic compared to last years bountiful harvest. I certainly will not have to sort out where to store them, they will be used up in a couple of weeks. I can only blame the weather and maybe I did not water them enough in the prolonged dry spell. Growing vegetables can be like that some years you win and some you just have to try and do better next year.
No good crying over my onions, at least the potatoes I am harvesting are OK. The dry weather has I think reduced the amount of yield from them but they are a healthy looking crop.

Growing Your Own Fruit and Vegetables
We grow our own fruit and vegetables for our meals for as much of the year as we can. Without a greenhouse we have to buy shop food in the winter months but in the spring, summer and autumn we often have enough to share with family and friends.
