My garden is running amok with chives popping their fluffy purple heads up in sweet rows in my raised garden box! They are so happy looking! I get so excited when I see them returning, like faithful friends who pop round for a visit this time each Spring! They are onion-y, pretty, low maintenance, and pretty fabulous! If you also have chive blossoms in your garden, here is what I like to do with them~
Mash them into chevre & spread on baguette slices for a quick snack or appetizer.
Mix them into scrambled eggs (with Spring greens!) or nettles for a beautiful, tasty breakfast.
Toss them into salads, along with some beautiful blue borage (see earlier post!) for a gorgeous lunch.
Pickle them for later use, if you have enough.
Mostly, enjoy them!
And now, just a little poem to remind everyone that Spring is truly here & going a little crazy is just fine:
A Little Madness in the Spring
A little madness in the Spring
Is wholesome even for the King,
But God be with the Clown ~
Who ponders this tremendous scene ~
This whole Experiment of Green ~
As if it were his own!
~ Emily Dickenson
