Spud, that is a very nice plant for your fence. 

If you want dill in some other place, just harvest the seeds when they are ripe and toss them wherever you want them. The birds will eat a bunch but birds also scratch in the ground and they will do the tilling and planting for you. 

I slice cucumbers and put them in vinegar with dill seed or weed, those little leaves that grow, they make very nice seasonings for roasts or fish and chicken. They sparkle a salad.

I like dill seed or leaves in cabbage salad, with both a vinegar dressing or a creamy dressing.  

One of my favorites is sour cream with cucumber slices and dill leaves. 

Cottage cheese and yogurt work well with a sprinkling of dill weed.

I've never grown it before, so I didn't know what to expect, but It impressed me!   I'm going to try it in a variety of foods to see where I like it.

Spud, that's some impressive dill!

My Dill is growing like weeds this year!  I planted some last year, and the seeds somehow planted themselves 10 feet or more away from last years plants.  There must be 100 of them sprouting up in this small space between my house and the alley.

I've pulled out about half of them so they don't shade my berry bushes, and compete for water and nutrients.  They're much easier to pull out than weeds, but still, I'll try to harvest all the seeds so they don't do it again next year.

Wikipedia says they only grow to 2 feet, but mine are already 5 feet tall.

Hard drive, not modem.  That error is because I've just been looking for a modem to buy instead of paying my ISP $8 a month to lease one.

Thanks Kathy.  Too bad about your computer.  I should get my external modem working and back up my 9 year-old computer in case it goes bad.  I'm trying to save enough to buy a new one, but it may take a while.

Thanks Randall, and I'll take some of your rain.

Comment by Randall Smith on June 25, 2016 at 6:44am

And it's good to have you back, too, Kathy!

Chris, hope your garden comes out of the drowning stage and thrives.
Spud, good to have you back.
I had to replace a fried computer and had lost access to all my accounts for the past three months or so. I'm happy to be able to check in AN again.
