The DreadBrewer has ceded the battlefield to the voles. In an attempt to salvage what was left of our crop, he picked all of the shallots and some of the leeks the other night. This despite the fact that the shallots were nowhere near ready for harvest and we now have an abundance of undersized shallots to use up rather quickly.
But he was damn sure he wasn’t going to sacrifice any more shallots to the little jerks.
Looks like we’ll be making a batch of Potato-Leek soup and some stir-fry Chicken with Shallots this weekend.
And then we will rethink our plan of attack regarding the voles.
We may have lost the battle, but the war is far from over.
