As I mentioned in my Herbs post a few days ago, chives are one of the first perennials to make their way back in the spring.  We continue to have warm weather here in Seattle and the chives are chomping at the bit!  Take a look at the little green guys pushing their way through the soil!

    Judging by my last visit to my brother\’s house in Seattle, it\’s the only place I know of that you have to check for slug traffic before taking such a photo. But I\’m as envious as you probably expect I am. Even in the relatively moderate climate of Kentucky, a sight like this can only be seen on a kitchen window sill right now.

    Hi Bob!It\’s funny you should mention the slugs. When I was out looking around the yard I was actually checking for them! I think that with this mild weather the chances are very good we are going to have a slug explosion this year! :-) A lot of people think that living in the NW with all the rain would be horrible but I love the fact that we get these little jumps on spring every now and then. Of course, we still have a long way to go before real spring and I\’m sure we\’ll hit freezing temps again in the next few weeks. But in the meantime we\’ll enjoy it! ~ B

    Well, I can\’t help making fun of the weather in Seatlle. LOLI used to keep track of the weather in Seattle on my homepage. But I guess it didn\’t work right. Every time I checked it said \’55 and cloudy with a chance of rain\’. You aren\’t the only person who\’s mentioned to me the advantages of getting a jump on spring in January. It\’s less often mentioned that Seattle also sometimes experiences a jump on spring in July. LOL

    Since you\’ve actually been to Seattle, I\’m going to let you get away with those comments :-) And actually, I don\’t mind encouraging them – the fewer people who think that Seattle is a great place to live, the better! At least until we get our mass transit story figured out! ~ B
