I just harvested my chives for the first time this year. Of course, they immediately started growing quickly again, but there are now DOZENS of blossom stems showing. What is causing this? It has never happened previously.

The Chives are bolting and forming flower heads. You can remove the flower heads or you can even allow then to bloom and eat the flowers!
I thought maybe they were pot bound and needed to be transplanted. I have never eaten the chive flowers. Do they taste like the stems?
