Big bumblebees all over my #chives yesterday. The flowers are pale after taking so much hot sun, I'm so glad for the rain today. #wildlifewednesday #bumblebee #wildlifewednesday-

@carmen-sylva Fantastic! You can also eat the flowers too, they're sweet, crunchy and slightly oniony 😄

#GYO tip! Use the flowers on your chives for a crunchy, zingy garnish! Tonight we had some on our pasta salad - not the most beautiful picture, but it tasted good! #chives #growyourown #garnish #edible #edibleflowers #edibleflower #gyo-herbs #food #growyourownherbs

Update on the chives #seedlings! They've gotten so floppy but on most I can see a little "leaf" or rather another stem growing off the main bit (I'm new at this, ok? 😝) which I assume is like a true leaf? #clueless #newbie #firstseeds #seeds #chives #gyo #windowsill

Give your chives a location in the sunniest spot. They like sun and warmth.
