Dill

dillDill, Anethum Graveolens, is in the carrot family.  It likes full sun in well drained soil.  Dill can grow 3 to 4 feet tall and 2 to 3 feet wide.  It is a warm weather annual.  The wispy fern like leaves have a tangy flavor.  It is a great seasoning for vegetables, fish and dips.  It is reported to promote bone health, boost your immune system and reduce inflammation.  Dill is a source of Calcium, Potassium and Manganese.  Pinch flower heads off for longer production.
