Chives are possibly the easiest herbs to grow. If they weren't so pretty and tasty, they could easily be considered weeds since they self propagate so readily. It is so convenient to step outside and snip a few to add to any number of dishes. Have you cooked with chive flowers?
Happy Memorial Day! Remember those who sacrificed their lives for us.
Spring arrives later in Northeastern New York and New England than it does most anywhere else in the country. When I lived in Charlottesville, Virginia, the month of March ushered in the spring rather than the mid to late April or even in some years May of the north woods. Wherever I have lived that has a true change of seasons, there has, however, always been a special, transient color of green as the tree leaf buds emerge into the new warmth. I like to call this color "incipient" green as it provides a reassuring confirmation of the rebirth taking place around us.
