If you aren't there, I'd say you are really close. Stalks falling over and/or turning brown are good indicators from what I've read. Wasn't there a RookieTopic on Shallots? Surely, harvesting info was in there, too. Long story short, I haven't grown shallots yet.

If they were mine, I would wait until the green leaves are a bit more yellow and lift from underneath, do not pull from the tops. Yes, do use the Forum search feature for more info about shallots. By the way, they are lookin' fine! Very Happy

I got impatient/curious a couple weeks ago and harvested a couple sets. They were on the small side, but they cured nicely and I've eaten a couple. Smile The rest look about like those of the OP, the stalks are falling over but not really yellowed yet.
