Goodies coming up early Spring!
Chives are one of the first things growing in my garden. After a long winter, adding fresh chives to salads or to your cooked dishes just screams Spring. They are easy care, grow back every Spring and just need to be weeded and watered. The chives can be completely lopped off and they will grow back time and time again.
Winter onions are just as easy care as the chives. I got some of the small onions that grow from the tops of the stalks and just planted them. Now I can go to the garden and steal some once they are a good size. Both Winter Onions and Chives will easily reproduce if you let them go to seed but I haven't had much problem of them spreading, they stay pretty close to the mother plant.
