Chives were the first thing to start in the herb garden. Though I have established plants, I added a seed packet of chives a few weeks ago to assure a healthy harvest.
Cives has a very mild oniony flavor and can be used fresh or dried.
When July and August come and the tomato vines are full, we use fresh chives in our homemade pasta sauces.
The lambs ear is just poking through a fresh layer of well seasoned compost, as is the mint tea bed.
