The last rain storms that we had roll through here bent over the very tall dill plants so far that they don’t want to straighten up.
The seed heads that are still in flower have re-aligned themselves with the sun and are growing upright now, even though the thick main stems are bowed over.
There’s still plenty of time to make the dill pickles!
The seeds that drop now may have time to sprout before the days get too short. Keep a lookout for baby dill plants that could be harvested before the weather gets freezing cold.
After the weather freezes we’ll have to rely on dill weed or dill seed in the cupboard as it won’t overwinter, even if protected from freezing temperatures.
