Green Thumb Sunday: Dad’s chives

I took this photo of chives in my Dad’s garden back in September.

    Mmmmmm chives! Best with sour cream on a hot baked potato ;~)
    Have a great Sunday!

    So fresh and green, and such a wonderful plant – you keep cutting and it keeps growing. They are also very pretty in flower.

    Deb, that’s one of my favorite ways to enjoy them, too.

    Alice, I finally got to experience chive flowers for the first time this summer, and you’re right…they are beautiful. I have a photo of one that I’ll probably post on an upcoming Sunday.

    Nice fresh looking chives. They are really worth growing, it’s the sort of herb thats always there. My wife uses Chives all the time, she makes a very nice cheese and Chive scone. Have a nice week.

    I haven’t grown chives yet…..you are all making me think I need to plant some :-) Great photo, Genie!

    Mrs. Lifecruiser, they looked even fresher in person, and were delicious!

    Roy, I grew two kinds this year and didn’t use them nearly enough. There’s always next year, I guess…

    Colleen, I definitely recommend it. They’re such a delicious herb! They dry really well, too.
