ISO Dill heads for pickling

Okay - I have 20lbs of mini dills ready to pickle *today*, and I can't find dill heads anywhere. I've called Harvest Wagon and Phil's Place @ SLM... nothing today.

Anybody know where I can find them, preferably on the Danforth?

  1. Cookstown Greens has had dill heads at their Farmer's Market stand for the past couple weeks, today they are at East Lynn Park on Danforth

      Outstanding, thank you. I was headed there in a few minutes for just that purpose, and this gives me a precise target.

        Alas, no dill @ Cookstown. But the East Lynn Market is a hidden gem. I used dill seed instead; not ideal, but good enough. Next time, I'll make sure I have the dill before the cukes!

    2. recognizing there is no downtown locations but Highland Farms had huge bunches of mature Dill on the weekend (Dufferin Street location)

          I have also seen them at Highland Farms, and in my garden.

      1. I saw some smaller ones at SLM yesterday. I usually get mine on Roncy.
