Harvesting Chive Seeds or Going to Seed

Is it me, or does it seem like everything in the garden is blooming and setting seed a little too early this summer? 

I think my chives have 'bolted' so I've chopped them back and saved the dried flower heads to collect the seeds.

Of course, there aren't very many flower heads because I have a bad habit of picking the flowers and eating them as I stroll around the garden.  I must have been a rabbit in a previous life. 

With a little luck, the weather will cool down and the chives will put on another flush of growth.

Note to self:  DO NOT EAT THE FLOWERS 


  1. I would agree with you on this one! I don't know know why this is as we have had more cool days. You gave me a chuckle about being a rabbit in a former life! Lovely chives friend!! Happy Wednesday to you! Nicole xo

  2. Lovely post, and I'm impressed that you're collecting the seeds. Someone once told me I was a canary in a former life...which would explain my fear of cats!

  3. I agree, everything in the garden seems to be early this year.
