Chives are are one of the easiest plants to grow, and we enjoy them so much! Not only do chives taste wonderful as an addition to many meals, but they also add a unique look to your backyard and container garden and can help with pest prevention.
We built the kids a 3×3 flower bed when we first started and this year we gave them an additional 4×4 bed for veggies. Their spring bed didn’t do so well, but they’ve learned from their mistakes and are ready to start over with a fall bed of carrots, beans, and chives.
This video shows how we cleaned the bed out, added compost, and Brooklyn plants the entire bed by herself!
