When, and how, to harvest dill?
Apparently, I've inherited dill. This my first garden in a new house, and for a while my husband and I were picking what we though were weeds like mad. The whole garden would have been dill if we hadn't. After realizing that it had a nice scent, we spoke to the daughter of the former owner who confirmed that her mother had grown lots of dill for pickles. So, we've allowed a few to grow. Is this dill universal in flavor, meaning can I use it for anything, or will it be best for pickles? Also, when do I harvest it, and how? What parts get kept? Does it flower quickly? I don't want it to go that far, as we'll already be finding dill plants for years to come. Obviously, I know nothing about this plant, but thanks for the help!
