Dill

My dill is actually producing this year.
Imagine pickles without dill! Some homemade ranch dressings call for dill; in fact, I think it is the secret ingredient. You can also use dill in dips, salads and soups. I've never had any luck with dill until this year. Must be the mushroom compost I'm using this year.

Dill needs full sun, a moderate amount of water, and good, rich soil. Dill can reach 3 to 4 feet in height. It's best to harvest the leaves when they're 6 to 8 inches tall and before flowering.

Dill is in the same family as cumin and parsley. So try it out! It's a delightful feathery plant that's as easy on the eyes as on the palate.
