My chives are doing well and the spring onions from many years ago are back and have buds.

I am chiving everything I can possibly chive, replacing shallots and onions, as the chives are so prolific this year. I've had to transplant lovely clumps growing in the gravel driveway to where they should be. Shallots are looking good, and my mints, balms, oregano, thyme and sage look fine.

The first of the radishes are up. This is the earliest I've tried radishes....21 days and counting (the same amount of time it would take to hatch a clutch of eggs if one the girls would go broody....they seem more interested in spending time following the Big Chickens than they do sitting on a clutch of eggs...).

I guess I should go throw a few radish seeds in my "garden".

Go for it! I find if I seed late May, often the radishes bolt because it gets too hot in June. We have had good luck planting radish seeds mid-August for fall radishes. I have also put in the winter radishes then. Don't forget you can eat the tops (before they get fuzzy!).

Thanks for the tip on radish tops.

Here is a photo of one of my raised vegetable beds. Potatoes and onions!
