I knew chives were hard to kill, but this really surprised me. I guess it just wanted to "rest" for four or five months before presenting me with this baby. Isn't it cute?
In another couple of months the parent plant will be sending up new shoots. But this baby is going to stay right on my window sill. The parsley, basil, sage and rosemary will be planted back in the garden to grow and prosper. But I think I'll keep this plant in its pot. By next winter it will have filled the pot and I'll have fresh chives all winter long.
On another note.... today it got up to 38 degrees F.!!! It's hard to believe that one week ago it was -9 degrees with a wind chill of -28! Ah, Iowa - gotta love it! I guess the groundhog got it right this year. Spring is in the air!
