Chives the Strongheart

I think I'll try to show you folks each crop as it comes along up here at Lakeside Gardens. After the Maple syrup harvesting, the sturdy little chives appeared. Chives are an edible perennial and they are usually snipped with a scissors and sprinkled on salads, pastas, potatoes or maybe wherever you might want to sprinkle them. They taste like the green part of green onions and since they're dark green in color, they're probably good for you. It seems like the more colorful the food item, the better it is for you. I called them "Chives the Strongheart" because they never fail to pop right up even in the nastiest of Springs and they live through the freezing nights that often appear in our Mays.
