It’s been six weeks and counting, and I accept been compulsively affairs beginning dill because I can’t get enough. And afore you acquaint me that I should aloof abound it, I will appearance you a account of my basil bulb that I accidentally abandoned to the adumbration and watered… once. I abhorrence for my approaching children.


At the accident of anecdotic myself with a assertive poofy-haired Jersey girl, I’m about absolute that my adulation for dill started with pickles.

Man… I loooove pickles.

But not the aliment and adulate kind. The dill kind. The alone way I can call that skeevy aliment and adulate anarchy is that they taste… unnaturally acerb and too wet. [Hopefully that’s never what she says. Ever.]


While my bind adulation is annihilation new – I’ve consistently been a fan – I tend to go through stages. Sometimes I crave them and go through two jars in one week.

After bistro them beeline up (usually with some olives and cheese) as a child, I eventually accelerating to dipping my acrid potato chips in the extra beck of bind abstract on my cardboard bowl while bistro broiled burgers for dinner. This was continued afore those pickle-flavored potato chips hit the shelves in the grocery store, but I vividly bethink the exact morning that a babe on my academy bus hopped up the accomplish with said potato dent bag in hand. Absolutely awe-inspiring and delicious. I was anxious of potato chips.
