Spring Cleaning in the Garden

Even though these chives have been part of my patio container gardener for many years, it surprises me every spring. I guess I never expect it to make it though the winter after suffering through snowstorms and subzero temperatures. But year after year, these chives are the first edibles in my spring garden. All I have to do is gently pull away the old leaves…

…to reveal the tender greens hiding underneath. Soon I’ll start snipping these chives soon adding them to my spring recipes. With a little water and sunshine I’ll still be harvesting chives from this container in November to add fresh greens to the Thanksgiving mashed potatoes.
