Gail says if you're only going to grow one herb, make it chives.  They're easy to grow and need hardly any care at all.   In the spring, you get these sweet little pink flowers.

And these overwintered in a particularly hardy strawberry jar.  Didn't bother the chives one bit.  Not recommended for the jar, though!

Using  fresh chives is easy too.  A few snips and it's amazing how much flavor is added to that classic baked potato with butter & sour cream!   Or maybe fresh chives mixed in with your hamburgers for the grill . . . how about with some cream cheese and your favorite crackers. . .  So easy, and you look like a pro in the kitchen!  If you're using chives, we'd love to hear your ideas too.
