Figs and Shallots

How do I start a fig tree if I do not buy it at a nursery? Can I use a pit? How would one grow shallots? Can I grow then in a small garden or a pot of some sort?

It is not recommended to start a fig tree from seed. Purchasing them at your local gardening center or propagating them is the better choice. Fig trees root easily and are easy to propagate through cuttings. These articles should help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/figs/how-to-grow-figs.htm
