Chives are often overlooked, but these small plants are a great source for vitamin C, K and folic acid. Chives grow very quickly, making them an easy plant to grow and belong to every household. Cut them directly on your buttered, freshly toasted bread, add them to your scrambled eggs, salads, or just like parsley to your soups. Chives are a must for every breakfast and they love sunlight. When harvesting, cut chives at the bottom and harvest the entire blades.
