"Potato Onions"

I now know that they are an enlarged, perennial, multiplying form of shallot. Two days ago at south Tampa's DoBond market, a charming Vietnamese store, I spent $2.49 on a good sized bag of shallots that struck me as bigger than usual. Despite the muggy summer heat, I will plant some now in a Water Wise Container Garden, and hope that the rest keep until the October cool down. To plant a bulbing alllium in midsummer is a long shot, but over the years I've learned a lot from "risky" experiments in the garden.
