Dill is a volunteer in my garden. I planted it years ago, and it’s been happily reseeding itself here and there ever since.
It’s one of those plants that just dazzles me. I never tire of looking at it’s most delicate beauty, not to mention it’s smell and taste.
I love it in salads and for making pickles. Often the dill and cucumbers do not come at the same time. But, if I get lucky, it will be going to seed about the time the cucumbers are coming on, and then it is a fantastic way to save summer in a jar.
But mostly, I just enjoy it for it’s beauty and elegance.
And sometimes when I have excessive amounts of it, I use it as a bouquet. It has that stand alone quality and needs no other companion to make it the perfect simple summer table centerpiece.
