Welcome!

Did you plant fennel or dill? If one of those, crushing a leaf and smelling it will tell you.

I'm pretty sure now that its a wild fennel.
Apparently this type doesn't develop a bulb.
thanks, Daisy
now I just have to learn how to harvest.

Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare) has white flowers and the leaves are fragrant when crushed.



Dog Fennel (Eupatorium capillifolium) has yellow flowers and the leaves emit an unpleasant odor when crushed.

I for sure will keep this. My wife is drying some of the delicate parts for tea use apparently. I just bought some normal fennel seeds and planted some for a fall harvest. These should have the bulbs so that should be interesting. thanks for the info's I really appreciate it.

And the kids. I planted fennel for the butterflies and the children (tastes like licorice). Smiling
