The First Cut

Is the sweetest. I have a real jump on the season having been up to Mamaroneck a few times now because of all the seed starting. Last year it wasn't until May that I had my first taste of the kitchen garden's earliest produce- chives. This year, while preparing the beds I also tidied up the chive patch dividing it up and potted up a little patch for myself to bring home. The picture actually shows the 3rd or 4th cut- it grows fast. I won't be edging the whole beds with chives as I thought I might, the reason being- there were a few survivors from last year - the thyme and marjoram. The reason may be how close to the edge I planted them which must keep their roots a little drier so I might expand on that theme.
