One of the great benefits of planting heirlooms is that their seeds hold true to type. If you have the time and inclination, you can save seeds from year to year from your own home garden. Seed saving is something that I've been wanting to try for awhile, but just somehow never found the time. This year, I decided to start simple with lettuce and dill.
I saved a jar of dill seeds and when I was done I was surprised that my hands smelled like pickles! I didn't realize that dried dill seed was quite so aromatic! Even after washing my hands, they still smelled!
