Dill Weed!

I just planted two dill weed plants in my back yard within the hour. An opportunity presented itself where I could select some unwanted dill weed plants that were en route to the green waste bin. I selected plants that had good roots.

I really love opportunities like this: I have several other plants, edible and inedible in my gardens. However, I always leave open garden space for when things like this happen!

Of course, this means that I will have to thumb through my dozens of cookbooks and find out what I will be doing with this unexpected good fortune. I already have a recipe for herb bread that I am interested in, but I am sure that there will be many other recipes that I will catch my attention also.

HOW TO: This is the first time that I have ever grown dill weed and hope that the plants survive the transplanting process. I simply dug some holes in the ground, inserted the plants, shoveled the dug up soil back into the holes to fill them in, pressed down on the soil to make sure that the soiled was packed somewhat firmly, and watered.

Because the plants are tall and to ensure that they do not topple over (especially since it has been windy here for the past few days), after watering the plants, I inserted a wood stake into the moist ground. The stake is next to the plants and I think it will be helpful since the plants are a bit limp since it was hours from the time the plants were dug up to the time I was able to get home to plant.

  1. Hope they will do well. I am not a big fan of dill, but like you, I would be scouring the recipes to find something to enjoy with it!!! Seems like there was something I once had with dill…it may have been a loaf of homemade bread,…that was delicious! If I can find anything that looks like it could have been it, I will let you know!!!
