This week, we're tackling two of the most prolific early seasonal arrivals: chives and radishes.

  1. My chives are going crazy in my herb garden so your timing is perfect! Gotta put some of these recipes to the test. Loving your CSA shares posts, Ninj!

    1. Have fun with the recipes, and thanks for checking out all the CSA posts, Bill!

  2. I just read an article about herbs you should never buy - one of them was chives. They said all you had to do was find someone who had them in their garden - and they would be more than happy to share!

    1. You have no idea how true this is! Every year I dig up clumps of them to give away and every year I *still* have too many!
