A delicious seasoning for fish and vegetables, Dill is a member of the Umbelliferae family and is known to attract beneficial insects to pollinate other vegetables and fruits in your kitchen gar- den. Sow anytime after the soil can be worked in the spring. Direct seed Dill in moderately fertile, well-draining soil in full direct sunlight. Sow small pinches of seed every 3" to 4". Then, carefully thin the seedlings to about 6" apart. Dill dislikes transplanting, so leave it alone except for regular watering and weeding. A wonderful leafy variety, direct sow Dill every 2 to 3 weeks for continual harvest through the summer. A fast grower, Dill bolts in hot weath- er, so multiple sowings are a good idea. Harvest sprigs of Dill at anytime or the entire head when the seed has matured for use as seasoning when making dill pickles.
