blooming chives

I usually don’t let my chives flower like this. Now I wonder why not? As much as I love fresh herbs, it’s possible I enjoy looking at the chives as much as I enjoy eating them.

143/365: chives in bloom

growing ingredients

One of the things I miss most in winter is fresh food, particularly herbs. I find walking out to the garden to pick fresh herbs for cooking to be utterly luxurious. So simple. So very satisfying.

The chives are always the first to return and couldn’t be more welcome.
