Germination was great

I just tasted one of these today, and they're really good! Much better than garlic chives.

Excellent

Germination was great, and these taste really nice, with mellow chive taste -- just like they should be. I am so excited about these!

Yummy chives!

They grew well, even in my part-sun patch, and I have enjoyed cooking with and eating them.
