Now appearing for the first time this season
Was it the rain? The shorter days? The slightly cooler temperatures. Overnight, truly from sunset to sunrise, the garlic chives are covered with buds. These are all in pots. The first of them came incidently in pots of tomato or chile plants bought at the South Austin farmers' market in the parking lot of El Gallo. They reseed themselves easily and have spread to the ground and to other pots. They winter over, and they seem to do better the more crowded they are.
