Mine aren't quite that far on but the rain has certainly made a difference.  :wave:

My banana shallots are much better than last year, they hardly bulked up at all in the heatwave....
If it's not pouring with rain, I'm either in the garden or at the lottie!

Will be lifting mine this week, use them as "pickled onions" mainly a bit of a cheat...  :wave:
