I grow a lot of dill...or rather it grows...I eat a ton of fish and dill is always a good match.

Did you plant it originally, or did it just blow in?

No, I imagine not. It's called "Dill Weed" for a reason!

I wish it would grow like that in the south! It bolts in the heat.

I'm a bit cooler than you are, Susan. We are able to grow it, although it is bolting right now.

I can grow it until around May, but this year wasn't very kind to me. I sure do love it ... mamoth better than fern leaf, but won't fuss too much if it's the only thing I can get.
