After a few months of inactivity, I am back because a lot of plants are growing in our garden.

Chives (Allium schoenoprasum) are the smallest species of the edible onions.[1] They are native to Europe, Asia and North America.[2]. Allium schoenoprasum is also the only species of Allium native to both the New and the Old World and is a perennial.
The name of the species derives from the Greek skhoínos (sedge) and práson (leek).[3] Its English name, chive, derives from the French word cive, from cepa, the Latin word for onion.[4]
In culinary uses, chives leaves (straws) are shredded for use as condiment for fish, potatoes and soups. Chives are a commonly used household herb, frequent in gardens and in grocery stores. It has insect-repelling properties which can be used in gardens to control pests.
