Gardeners' Notes:

This is the first time we've grown dill and we are enjoying it. It grows quickly and puts off a delicious aroma when brushed up against, or even standing near it. We cooked with it for the first time recently and found it to be somewhat spicier than the store bought dill we usually cook with though this may be because it was fresh rather than dried.

We are having trouble with garden pests but find they leave this plant alone. It's waist high at this point and still growing both up and out. It will be interesting to see where this plant is at the end of the season.

Grows very quickly. We planted our last month and it is already 2 feet tall. It has also budded out. Just walking by you get a great dill smell!! It is definitely a favorite in our herb garden!
