Onion Chives

Onion chives. Another herb I bought because it's so expensive in the store. It's great for a patio garden, placed in a container. I know that my plants are growing well, because it took a bout a week for me to find a pot to plant them in, so I just placed the plants, still in the plastic containers from the store with drainage holes, right on top of a pile of dirt. When I planted them in a new pot this week, they had already rooted to the pile of dirt through the drainage holes! Anyway, I put them in my pot and they should grow well.

Did you know that the name "chive" is derived from the Latin cepa, which means onion.

You can constantly cut these grassy leaves and use them in recipes. They grow back nicely!
