Dill Week: Dill Tzatziki

Hello! For the first week of Herb Month I’m featuring dill:) I have a delicious tzatziki recipe that is garlicky and lemony and of course, full of dill. But first, I wanted to share some tips on how to take care of your dill plants. You can just as easily buy fresh dill at the grocery store, but there’s something special about picking fresh produce from a garden.

Dill in my herb garden;)

I didn’t start any of the herbs in my garden from seed- I bought them already sprouted from a garden centre. I then planted them in a large pot with some other herbs. Make sure that the plants aren’t too close to each other and have room to grow. Water your dill well during the summer months. You can start harvesting as soon as your plant has about five leaves (it will probably have five when you buy it from the store). Just pinch off the leaves or use scissors to cut them off. Once you rinse off your dill, you’re ready to start cooking!

  • About 1 tbs fresh dill
  • Salt and pepper to taste

June is Herb Month!!

Hi everyone! I’m super excited for June, because it’s herb month at MyDayIsBooked.com! I recently started an herb garden, and decided that during the month of June I would post recipes that center around herbs. In this post I just want to let you guys know what’s going to be happening on my site next month;)

Every week I’ll be focusing on a different herb; parsley, cilantro, dill and basil (not in this particular order). I’ll let you know how to look after and harvest each plant, and post a sauce, salad and surprise recipe that uses it in some way. Yes, there will be three posts a week on my site, and yes, I’m going to have to do some hardcore recipe testing in the next few weeks. But who doesn’t need some extra pressure before final exams? 😂😂

Seriously though, I can’t wait to start sharing my herb posts with you guys. Herbs are great because they pack in so much flavour, but take so little space to grow. I have five different herbs growing in one big pot right now. If you don’t have the time or space to look after a big garden, herbs are the way to go. I really hope that you find Herb Month useful and exciting!

Yours Truly,
