Dill Seeds = Calcium & Iron

Today I harvested my dill seeds and I read dill contains lots of calcium and iron. Years ago there wasn't much research about the nutritional value of herbs. At the time I surmised food which adds so much flavor must be good for you too. Nowadays there is much more information about herbs; every time I read about the nutritional value of herbs I am amazed.

So don't let your dill seeds blow away. Harvest them and use them in salads, soups, dip, pickles, or wherever you can. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.


  1. Some days I am pretty certain that our ancestors knew more than our scientists do...

  2. Hi Elephant's Child, thanks, I am absolutely sure of that sentiment as well.

  3. The best gill I ever grew was from seeds that self planted in the garden. I transplanted the seedlings and the plants reached five feet. It's a great favorite of ours. It's so nice to know that it's healthy too!

    1. Of course that should be DILL not gill which reminds me of fish!

  4. Hi Suzi, thanks, I had mine in a large pot so it got about three feet tall. I never knew it was so loaded with vitamins. glad I am growing so many herbs and now I am starting to use them more and more.

  5. There's nothing quite like fresh herbs.


I love suggestions, questions, critiques, thanks for your comment
