Another plant that was in the garden when we moved in:
Watching this plant bloom was a wonderful surprise. I had not seen chives blooming before. The buds come up amidst the long stalks and then burst into these beautiful red-purple puffy balls.
I am learning to use chives in my cooking since I like going out into the garden and picking things that we then eat. I have put them with potatoes, and in potato salad, and in green salad. I saw them growing at a friend’s house and she said she puts them in eggs.
If you cook with chives, please share with me how you use them!
