Dill is one of the many herbs I have growing in my garden. It is one of my favourites… so much so that it gets the privilege of growing in one of my most loved mosaic pots. The heart is made from a jewellery dish that I bought when travelling through Vietnam – it fell to the floor one fateful day and smashed into tiny pieces.
The yellow flowers of the dill plant attracts beneficial bugs such as ladybugs, hoverflies and lacewings. According to the plant info tag that came with the plant one hoverfly will consume 1200 aphids… so we want to welcome those hoverflies with open arms.
One of my all time favourite summer snacks has dill. It is simple enough to make. You need water crackers, camembert cheese, pear and, yep you guessed it, some freshly picked dill. Delicious.
Enjoy your weekend.
