Here is a vintage seed packet that includes an illustration of dill weed alongside a jar of dill pickles. Instructions for planting the dill seeds are on the back of the package. This old herb seed packet was put up by Card Seed Co.

Visitors to northern California where we live see dill weeds growing wild along every highway and byway — it is sometimes mistaken for the anise plant that smells like licorice. — Thanks for sending the seed packet pic along.

That’s an interesting bit of Information, Ray. I’m curious to know if the wild dill can be used in the same way as the tame (if that’s the correct term) variety and does it have the same delicious smell as the stuff we grow in our gardens?
You’re welcome for the seed packet.
